Draw site housing project Open House
Join the Town of Snowmass Village for an Open House on an upcoming housing project on Wednesday, May 31, 2023, from 4–6 p.m. at Town Hall.
In response to the need for workforce housing in our community, the Town of Snowmass Village developed a Workforce Housing Master Plan unanimously adopted by the Snowmass Village Town Council in October 2021.
The Town Hall Draw site was identified for the next housing project because it has the most significant potential for unit development, is well-located, and has historically been identified for future housing development. This project aims to maximize the site for housing, be developed within the existing topography, fit the location’s character, create a mix of housing sizes (one-, two-, and three-bedroom units), and take advantage of existing transit.
Staff will be available to answer questions about this project and housing within Snowmass Village. The open house will be held at Town Hall in the Council Chambers. We hope to see you there!
More information is available on the project webpage.
