Housing Developments

The Boulder County Housing Authority is responding to the rapidly rising need for an increased supply of affordable housing across all of our communities. We seek to build high quality, environmentally sustainable neighborhoods that welcome our clients home.

Boulder County purchased the 13-acre Alkonis property to support the affordable housing needs of Louisville. The property, now known as Kestrel, is located just northwest of Highway 42 and South Boulder Road, and will include senior housing, family housing, pocket parks, and commercial uses.
