Affordable Housing Strategy

The Affordable Housing Strategy was presented to the Town Council on May 4th 2021, to the community on May 12th 2021 and to the CSRD Board on June 17th 2021.

Access to housing is vital to community well-being. For this reason, the Golden Community Coop partnered with the Town of Golden to hire CitySpaces Consulting to develop the Housing Needs Report and Affordable Housing Strategy for Golden and Area A. The process involved engagement with the community, non-profit partners, local businesses and developers through key informant interviews, an open house and focus groups.

The Housing Needs Report identifies the populations most in need of housing, housing gaps and other housing issues in the community; while the Affordable Housing Strategy identifies a series of actions and tools that can be implemented to address these needs and to influence change.

The Affordable Housing Strategy identifies 16 strategies that the Town, Coop, and community partners can consider towards addressing local housing gaps and meeting the community’s housing needs.
