Now that the Broomfield Housing Authority has been approved, the next step is figuring out who will serve on it.
The housing authority is seeking five Broomfield residents with applicable experience to serve as commissioners, and applications are being accepted through Nov. 28 by 5 p.m.
According to the webpage, the housing authority is seeking commissioners with the following skills, qualifications or experiences “to progress affordable housing projects and policies”:
Experience in housing development and management, especially prior experience at a housing authority or similar entity;
Experience in development finance, especially management of operational and project funds over $1 million (and developments of over $20 million);
Experience in housing policy and advocacy, especially in relation to housing and local housing policies; and
And/or lived experience with housing insecurity, homelessness or living in affordable housing.
The five commissioners are expected to be appointed by the City Council on Dec. 14, and it is anticipated the housing authority will begin working the first weeks of January.
“Commissioners will be responsible for creating and achieving the vision, direction and work plan of this community-focused, housing organization,” the webpage reads. “The nonprofit, quasi-governmental entity will lead and implement programs and services to address the housing needs and gaps in the City and County of Broomfield.”
