Riverview project tour set for Feb. 28

Eagle County’s Housing Department and Project Management Department staff will welcome another group of families back to the Riverview Apartments next week. A tour of the property, including a look inside one of the refurbished units, will take place at 1:30 p.m. Feb. 28. The rehabilitation project includes new siding and insulation and improvements to the lighting, landscaping and parking lot, as well as some interior renovations. Riverview includes 72 units and is Eagle County's only Section 8 housing complex, with rental rates dependent on income and subsidized by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).

Construction at Riverview began in August 2010 and is scheduled for completion this spring. All tenants have been relocated for the duration of the project. Funding for the rehabilitation comes from a combination of competitive tax credit allocations in the amount of $3.8 million, grants from HUD and the Colorado Division of Housing totaling $1.5 million, and an $8.9 million permanent loan.

The architect and general contractor for the project are Avon-based interaction and R.A. Nelson & Associates, Inc. At its completion, the renovation is expected to have created more than 180 local construction jobs. All interested community members are invited to attend next Monday’s tour. For more information, contact Housing Director Jill Klosterman at 970-328-8773.
