Housing & Non-Residential Demand – Meeting Notes February 28th
Focus Team: Housing & Non-Residential Demand #3
Date and Location: Monday, February 28, 2022 – Community Center West Room
Estimated Attendance: 22
- Do we feel comfortable with the idea that almost all affordable households will be renters, and preserving mostly move-up ownership?
- How do we feel about each product type and the households served? Do these appropriately address the need?
- Who are we missing and what types of housing would be suitable for them? How do we capture those needs and voices?
Key Technical Information Shared:
Dana Schoewe, Vice President RCLCO, shared preliminary findings in RCLOC’s housing demand study, with a focus on household segmentation. See attached slides.
Q: Will there be rent to own opportunities?
Q: Does the demand analysis include people who live in Moffat County but work in Routt County? A: RCLCO didn’t specifically look at demand from outside the county.
Q: Will data compiled in other community outreach (employers, marginalized folks, etc.) be shared with focus teams?
A: That data will be shared with the technical consultants and factor heavily into the Comprehensive Development Plan.
Q: How do we preserve homeownership opportunities?
A: Deed restrictions and community land trust (come to Stewardship/Econ meeting this Wednesday 3/2).
