Denver’s New Landlords – US News and World Reports

This is an important concept, as we try to address our housing needs, we should recognize that the creation of Accessory Dwelling Units, as discussed here, or Cooperative Living Spaces not only creates housing for the new renters, it also creates a revenue stream that might help a homeowner be able to stay in their home.

Our view: Opening doors for the homeless in Salem – Salem Evening News

16 units for young men 18 to 24 who are homeless or aging out of foster care, and has another 10 underway for older individuals

Dennis has 8 beds soon to be under constructed for those aging out on the Autism spectrum and 5 beds for homeless veterans tied up in litigation. FORWARD hopes to be under construction this winter. I am exploring, with DHCD, the possibility of a Chapter 40B Comprehensive Permit for the Veteran’s Home as a possible second permit for the project. Keeping our options open, and looking to speed up the project as best we can.
