Glenwood Springs community members are cordially invited to an open house for the update of the City of Glenwood Springs Strategic Housing Plan on Monday, February 13 at the Glenwood Springs Community Center. Two sessions will be offered, the first will be from 12-2 p.m. and the second will be from 6-8 p.m.
The Strategic Housing Plan is a planning document that provides housing and demographic data and possible strategies to increase the availability of affordable housing in Glenwood Springs. City staff would work toward implementation of the top priority strategies within a year of completion of the planning effort.
At the open house, display boards will be present with details about the plan update process. The public is invited to participate in activities in which they can learn about and prioritize housing strategies and engage with City staff. Individuals unable to attend the meeting in-person will be able to view open house boards and submit comments online at cogs.us/742 beginning February 13.
“The housing needs in Glenwood Springs are broad and include owner-occupied housing, senior housing, workforce housing, and affordable/low-income housing,” said Senior Planner Watkins Fulk-Gray. “Bolstering opportunities for the people of Glenwood to live in the same community where they work, participate, and play supports social vibrancy, quality of life, and economic vitality. The City is seeking to expand our toolbox to promote the production of affordable housing to meet these critical needs.”
In 2022, the City of Glenwood Springs received a $45,000 Innovative Housing Strategies grant from the Colorado Department of Local Affairs (DOLA) with a $15,000 local match to fund this plan update.
