To sustain the city’s present population and workforce, the Whitefish Housing Needs Assessment in 2022 established a goal of needing 1,310 new housing units by 2030. Additionally, it said that in order to satisfy community requirements, 75% of those must be priced below the going rate as reported in Daily Interlake.
