December Bbff: Affordable Housing In Colorado says
Denver and surrounding areas have seen some of the sharpest recent increases in rent and housing prices in the country. This may compromise the ability of younger people to enter the housing market, and perhaps threaten continued economic development based upon job growth and employee movement into metro Denver. At the same time, at the lowest end of the housing market, a significant population struggles to find reasonable housing options and solutions remain elusive.

How can we build more affordable housing for these different sectors? Will recent efforts in Denver make a difference? Is the “construction defect” mandate a significant challenge for creating affordable condominium options?

This panel will discuss the federal, state and local policies needed to address affordable housing issues in metro Denver and across Colorado.
