Housing Needs Assessment | Valleywide

VHF contributed $10,000 for the 2016 Housing Needs Assessment, helped fund the 2021 update to this assessment, and also paid for a North Valley Affordable Rental Market Review in 2021. These documents provide important data for both our organization and housing leaders at the Town, City, and County level to make informed decisions about current and future affordable housing.

North Village | Town of Mt. Crested Butte

The Valley Housing Fund is advocating for and contributing funds to affordability design research in this Planned Unit Development just south of the Snodgrass Trailhead in Mt. CB. The owner of the property, the Alvarez Family, has engaged in planning efforts with VHF since 2019 to provide more affordable housing than is required. This project is still in the planning phase but presents an exciting opportunity to partner in creating a liveable, recreation-based neighborhood.

VHF has participated in the Gunnison Rising Planned Unit Development (PUD) process to advocate for affordable housing. The current plan contains 200 affordable units in the 1700-unit development, plus flexible mixed-use zoning for up to an additional 25% of total units to be designated affordable.
