Garfield County Community Housing

The Board of County Commissioners find that an adequate supply of Affordable Housing in the County is essential and necessary to preserve and maintain the health, welfare, safety, and quality of life for residents of Garfield County.

  1. An adequate supply of housing that is affordable to the local labor force is necessary for the local economy to remain stable and to grow in a healthy manner.
  2. New development creates demand for workers in construction, maintenance, services, and retail sales, increasing the demand for Affordable Housing.
  3. New development shall be required to provide Affordable Housing that mitigates the impacts that are attributable to such development in areas designated by the County, where Affordable Housing has become limited and problematic for adequate workforce housing.

The purpose is to ensure that the housing needs of all economic segments of the community will be met. New development shall be required to contribute to the Affordable Housing supply in the County, as reasonable and appropriate with consideration to the development’s impact on the supply of Affordable Housing available to the local labor force. For more information, please read Garfield County Community Housing Guidelines.
