Fate will have a diverse range of housing options for residents at all stages of their lives.

Housing is an integral part of any community, as it can greatly influence whether people move to a community and whether or not they stay long-term. Housing today in Fate is almost entirely single-family detached homes, certainly an important housing type for families in suburban communities. However, there are not many options in Fate today for those at different stages of their lives, such as young professionals or empty nesters.

The goals in this section are focused on preserving existing neighborhoods, encouraging different types of housing in the community, and promoting quality of life amenities for residential areas. In total there are 13 total strategies related to quality housing choices, three of which are considered high priority for implementation.
