Eagle County Affordable Housing Guidelines
The Eagle County Local-Resident Housing Guidelines promote sustainable communities in Eagle County through the creation of affordable and permanent-resident housing stock as part of new development. The guidelines require construction of housing for households earning the equivalent of 140 percent AMI or lower— households that have little or no opportunity to purchase free-market housing without significant subsidy. The guidelines also provide options to create housing for local residents with incomes greater than 140 percent AMI, as free-market housing opportunities for these households are also limited. The guidelines are part of Eagle County’s broader solution of making housing available for and affordable to Eagle County’s growing workforce. The guidelines apply to only to development in unincorporated Eagle County requiring a development permit.
2008 Housing Guidelines Resolution
