The town of Crested Butte, located in the state of Colorado in the United States of America, will start an affordable housing construction.

The Crested Butte town and Bywater Development LLC are partnerships and are planning to build the affordable housing project Paradise Park in two months. According to information received, the housing project will have a cost of $ 7 million.

The project will be laid on June 1st. Firstly, 76 blocks will be built. The first draw for affordable housing will take place on 20 June. Applications will begin on 17 May.

“It takes some time to ensure those in the lottery are qualified buyers for the properties,” said Crested Butte community development director Michael Yerman. “Please do not wait until the last minute to complete and turn them in. If there are details missing you may have to provide more information to have them fixed before your application is deemed complete before the deadline.”

“Phase 1 units will be move-in-ready for applicants starting December 1, 2019 to May 1, 2020,” explained Yerman. “Depending on the level of interest, a second lottery for an additional 10 units will be held. The Phase 2 lottery would take place on August 8.

Total vertical construction cost for the project was calculated as 6 million dollars. According to Yerman, the town is assisting with an additional $900,000 to subsidize the project by paying for water and sewer taps, offsetting fire suppression sprinkler costs, surveying and title work, and the installation of a water main. The purchase of the town duplex as a pre-sold unit brings the total town contribution to $1.5 million.
