Valley Round Up - Jan, 18. 2019

Jan 18, 2019

  This week, interim leadership is in place in Aspen, and we get real data about the city’s growth. A group of locals are hoping to keep families and their pets together in the Roaring Fork Valley’s tight and restrictive housing market.

Habitat for Humanity, Roaring Fork Valley's mission states that they "provide a hand up, not a hand out" through their home ownership opportunities. Every home that Habitat builds is purchased by the selected family partners; the homes are not given away.

  Faced with the need for an additional 100 beds a year over the next decade, the Aspen Skiing Company hired a specific project manager just to work on solutions for housing employees.

On this week’s Mountain Edition, hosts Alycin Bektesh and Wyatt Orme present a compilation of the week’s news.

A veterans center that opened in Carbondale’s Third Street Center a year ago is already looking for a new home. Though some vets have been helped with things like housing and employment, more vets may use it if it was in Glenwood Springs. That’s according to Michael Conniff. He’s with the Western Slope Veterans Coalition and spoke with Marci Krivonen.

Michael Conniff is with the Western Slope Veterans Association, an organization that’s looking for a new home in Glenwood for it’s veterans center. They hope to announce a new space in July.
