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.
Amid skyrocketing housing prices in Boulder County and along the Front Range, Boulder County is collaborating with partners on a proposal to create Willoughby Corner, an east Lafayette neighborhood of about 400 affordable homes and market-rate for-sale homes that will help the City of Lafayette and Boulder County reach their goals for addressing the region’s lack of housing affordability in the years ahead.
The proposed housing site is a 24-acre parcel located just southwest of the intersection of 120th Street and East Emma Street in Lafayette. 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. For additional information and to sign up for updates, please see www.WilloughbyCorner.org.
The Spoke on Coffman, a public-private partnership between Boulder County Housing Authority (BCHA), the Longmont Downtown Development Authority (LDDA) and a local business, is a mixed-use development to be located at 518 Coffman Street in downtown Longmont.
In addition to 73 permanently-affordable rental homes for families and individuals earning 60% or less of the Area Median Income (AMI), this vibrant, mixed-use development will also include 263 parking spaces for residents, downtown employees and visitors, a commercial space which will likely be used as a workforce enterprise café, and BCHA Property Management offices.
The site is located across the street from the St. Vrain Community Hub, the County’s integrated “one-stop” location for services including financial supports, integrated public and behavioral health programs, personal finance and education, employment training and resources, and services for children and families. The Hub’s close proximity to the new residents will support stable housing and healthier households.

As part of our mission to help address the increasing need for affordable housing in our community, the Boulder County Housing Authority (BCHA) has started construction on its newest community, Tungsten Village, in Nederland.
This new building, owned, managed and maintained by BCHA, is located at 333 State Highway 72, a few blocks north of downtown Nederland. Tungsten Village will provide 26 homes affordable to residents with low and moderate income.
The Boulder County Housing Authority (BCHA) owns a 10 acre parcel of land in Gunbarrel near Twin Lakes. To help support people struggling with skyrocketing housing costs in Boulder County, we have proposed the development of between 60 and 120 homes affordable to low- and moderate-income families and individuals on the parcel. We have also partnered with the Boulder Valley School District to propose development of affordable homes for district employees (including teachers) on land it owns to the south of our property. In early 2017, the Boulder County Planning Commission narrowly rejected a change to the Boulder Valley Comprehensive Plan that would allow this development to move forward. At present, BCHA is holding this parcel in a land bank until our assessment of next steps with the property is complete.
