League of Women Voters and Estes Park EDC to Hold Second Discussion of Estes Valley’s Housing Needs January 10th

On January 10th from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm in the Town Board Room of Estes Park Town Hall, the League of Women Voters of Estes Park (LWVEP) and the Estes Park Economic Development Corporation (Estes Park EDC) will host a second panel discussion of the critical need for more workforce housing in the Estes Valley. 

The program will be moderated by Estes Park EDC Board of Directors Chair Jim Pickering and will feature five panelists:  Jeffrey Boring of the Estes Valley Land Trust, Naomi Hawf, Housing Director of the Estes Park Housing Authority, Eric Blackhurst, Board Chair of the Estes Park Housing Authority, Jon Nicholas, Estes Park EDC President/CEO, and Randy Hunt, Community Development Director of the Town of Estes Park. 

The program will focus on possible solutions by exploring the areas of incentives for developers, possible code changes, land availability and finding alternative revenue sources. There will be a third program, to be held later in the spring, which will be a town hall discussion and will involve significant input from the community.
