Principal Callahan Seltzer Serves as Panelist for ULI Advisory Services Report for Steamboat Springs, Colorado
HR&A Advisors Principal Callahan Seltzer served as a Panelist for a ULI Advisory Services Report for Steamboat Springs, CO. The report offers insights and recommendations for unlocking the potential of this mountain resort town that, like many of its peers, struggles to build housing affordable to low and moderate income households. The Yampa Valley Housing Authority invited ULI’s Advisory Services team to assess the Brown Ranch Community Development Plan, funding concepts, strategy working with the private sector, as well as stewardship and governance.
The resulting report highlights the unique characteristics and assets of Steamboat Springs, including its natural beauty, strong sense of community, and diverse economy. It also identifies key challenges and opportunities facing the town, such as increasing affordability challenges, a lack of housing supply, managing growth, preserving historic resources, and enhancing transportation and mobility. HR&A’s Infrastructure Funding Navigator is listed among various funding tools and funding prospects for Steamboat Springs to explore.
One of the key findings of the report is the need for strategic planning and collaboration among various stakeholders to ensure a sustainable and vibrant future for Steamboat Springs. Panelists also recommended implementing innovative land use and zoning strategies, promoting affordable housing options, and investing in transportation infrastructure to address current and future needs.
