Desperate Local Family Builds Shack In County Open Space!

ShackFlatirons…can you imagine reading this headline in the Daily Camera?

Boulder County has great resources to support families and individuals with inadequate incomes to secure affordable housing.

But the current path is not sustainable.

Subsidies, whether they come from city, county or private resources, are pushing the problem further into the future.

What is most needed at this time is a conversation around community priorities. The vast majority of local citizens are grateful for the foresight of those who had the vision to establish open space as a critical component of our local infrastructure. We all enjoy and benefit from open space, but most of us would not like to sleep there.

It’s time to create a similar vision around affordable housing. A diverse housing stock is equally as critical to the local infrastructure, and will impact our future transportation, ecological, and economic conditions.

The Collaborative Community Radio Show invites you to listen in on a forum entitled “New Paradigms in Affordable Housing” held on February 6th at 6:30 pm at Impact Hub Boulder (Location: 1877 Broadway, Suite 100, Boulder, CO 80302).
