Community Housing Overview

Committed to support, create and pave the way for community housing.

The Mountain Village Town Council is delighted to launch a Community Housing Initiative for 2021 and beyond. This initiative builds upon the Town of Mountain Village’s longstanding commitment to community housing and its role as the leader in the region in establishing and supporting existing and new community housing. In light of the ongoing urgent need for housing solutions throughout our community, the Town has developed a sweeping plan to demonstrate its continued commitment to support, create and pave the way for community housing.

To adequately pursue the Community Housing Initiative, as well as maintain the robust community housing program already in place, the Town Council will form a Community Housing Department with dedicated staffing to support our Community Housing Initiative, Village Court Apartments, programs, policies, compliance and regulations for the Town of Mountain Village.

In addition, the Planning and Development Services Division and Town Council, acting as the Mountain Village Housing Authority, will continue to establish and implement plans to provide community housing.

Currently, two-thirds of the full-time occupied housing units in Mountain Village are deed-restricted, the highest deed-restricted to free-market housing ratio in the region. However, the Town understands there is still more to be done to ensure anyone who wishes to make Mountain Village their home has the opportunity to do so.
