Community Inclusion: A Prerequisite to Solving the Housing Affordability Crisis

Living in Colorado is expensive. With population growth and housing costs steadily rising, the need for affordable housing becomes more urgent. The median home price in Denver as of April was $438,300 – rents averaged $1,500. These prices have pushed residents out of their lifelong neighborhoods, and have even, in some unfortunate instances, pushed people out of reliable housing altogether. Facing a growing housing crisis, community leaders must find housing solutions that balance the benefits of growth with the housing needs of all citizens.

Public/private partnerships for housing have loads of creative potential. And, a few common pitfalls. Here we explore some best practices to set your community up for success.

LIMBY: The “Live in My Back Yard” Invitation

Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs) provide citizens with an “Live In My Back Yard” (LIMBY) alternative to perpetual NIMBY / YIMBY headbutting that dominates not-so neighborly discourse surrounding development. This alternative invites a shift in perspective and embraces significant and growing support from zoning and planning documents, including the recent adoption of Blueprint Denver, as it seeks to change the city by reimagining our role within it
