Willoughby Corner

Willoughby Corner - Affordable Housing LafayetteAmid skyrocketing housing prices in Boulder County and along the Front Range, the City of Lafayette and Boulder County are collaborating on a project to create a neighborhood of affordable homes that will help the city and the county reach their goals for addressing the region’s lack of housing affordability in the years ahead. The housing site is a 24-acre parcel located just southwest of the intersection of 120th Street and East Emma Street in Lafayette. Boulder County and the City of Lafayette purchased the property for $3.5 million from Flatirons Community Church, a strong supporter of affordable housing. An intergovernmental agreement is in place between the City of Lafayette and Boulder County dedicating the land for the creation of deed-restricted, permanently-below-market-rate homes, to include both rental and ownership options.

Affordable Housing in Superior

On October 12, 2020 the Superior Board of Trustees passed an Inclusionary Housing Ordinance requiring new housing developments of ten (10) or more units, both for sale and for rent, to include an affordable component. For developments that meet this criteria 15% of the units shall be income-restricted. The ordinance is a step for the Town toward helping meet the Boulder County Regional Housing Partnership’s goal of 12% permanently attainable housing county-wide by 2035.
