City Staff Work on New Affordable Housing Units in North Boulder
With rolled up sleeves and tools in hand, city staff got down to work on a new housing project in north Boulder
In a partnership with Boulder Housing Partners and Habitat for Humanity, the city is developing affordable housing units in the Palo Park community.
“The city has contributed funds toward this project, and these will be homeownership units so we will stay connected to these units over the years as they sell and resell to future affordable homeowners,” said Kurt Firnhaber, Housing and Human Services director.
The project will include three triplexes and is expected to be completed by the end of the year. With the help of volunteers, this project will soon be ready for families and individuals to enjoy.
“Most of the families that move into these houses are social workers or daycare providers or solid middle class families who are living in very small apartments with their kids right now,” said Molly Goodman, Habitat for Humanity job site supervisor. “Our goal is to get each kid their own bedroom and have them in an ownership role rather than renting.”
