Understanding population projections, economic forecasts as well as age and structural characteristics, occupancy and tenure data, and value and affordability characteristics allows us to guide the future development and maintenance of housing in the City of River Falls.

Comprehensive Housing Study and Needs Analysis

The City, along with the River Falls Housing Authority funded the study. The data that Maxfield covers includes demographics, employment, housing characteristics and affordability, and for-sale, rental, senior and special needs markets.
