WHAT WE'RE WORKING ON RIGHT NOW

Affordable housing strategy and action plan

Wheat Ridge, CO

What tools will best support affordable housing development in an ever more expensive regional market?

SUMMARY

czb returns to Wheat Ridge in 2022 to help the city develop a strategy for increasing housing production, especially the production of affordable housing. The State of Colorado has begun an effort to incentivize local municipal actions aimed at increased affordable housing production, and asks that counties, cities, and towns study the viability of implementing new tools at the local level. Some examples include changes to local land use and development regulations to make housing development easier, and use of publicly owned land for affordable housing development. Analysis and strategic options will be discussed publicly beginning late in the Summer of 2022.
