Rolling Meadows: Preserving Local Housing Options in the Path of Redevelopment

An MPC Housing Resource

In recent years, the City of Rolling Meadows has intensified efforts to strengthen its financial base and become one of the region’s economic leaders. The City has also made it a goal to ensure that the local workforce and other residents in need of affordably priced homes continue to have options within the city. Rolling Meadows recognizes that economic growth and workforce housing go hand-in-hand, which many existing and prospective Rolling Meadows companies have corroborated. City officials are committed to ensuring that at least 20 percent of Rolling Meadow’s housing stock is and remains affordable and, in 2005, engaged the Metropolitan Planning Council to help identify ways to meet this goal.
