Clear Creek County wants your help improving the Clear Creek County Housing Strategy!

In June of 2021, Clear Creek County engaged a team of consultants to help us change our approach on housing in our community. Despite the fact that we all know that housing is an incredibly important issue that impacts everyone, we haven’t made enough progress. We knew we needed help, so we brought in some experts to give us some direction. It comes in the form of the attached DRAFT report.

A draft copy of the Clear Creek County Housing Strategy 2021 is available under the "Documents" widget on the right side of this page.

The report sought to answer two questions:

  1. "What should Clear Creek County's role be in supporting and advancing housing in the County?"
  2. "How do we move from understanding Clear Creek's housing needs to addressing them effectively?"

Developing the DRAFT Report

The consultant team, reviewed our progress since the 2018 Housing Needs Assessment, immersed themselves our context by interviewing stakeholders, and conducted a day-long site visit and a variety of research. From this, the consultant team made three primary recommendations:

  • Align land use plans and infrastructure investments to support development-ready lots appropriate for housing locals.
  • Prioritize housing as a use on public and institutionally-owned land
  • Preserve and improve existing housing

The Public Process

You may have heard the phrase “too many cooks spoil the broth”. Well, in the case of a document like this, the opposite is true. We need your participation, your attention, your engagement and your comments to make it a strong, representative document and to make sure that actions indicated by this document represent the breadth of perspectives in our community. Public comment closes on December 18th.
