Manufactured Housing Strategy

 

 

Background

More than 1,300 households live in Boulder’s five manufactured housing communities (MHCs), which provide a lifestyle valued by their residents at a relatively affordable cost. The city has committed to preserving this housing option and has taken many supportive actions. In 2019, the city adopted a Manufactured Housing Strategy, which includes Guiding Principles for decision making and a two-year (2020-21) Action Plan.
