Mixed New Housing

01/03/2017 – 12/31/2019

By 2019, 25% of new housing will be located in neighborhoods or developments that incorporate a mix of lot sizes, development densities and housing types and styles

Description

To allow for varied incomes, lifestyles, and age groups, it is essential to provide opportunities for different housing types. 

The following principles will help provide a balance of housing types, located appropriately with accessible infrastructure and services:

  • Opportunities for affordable housing, senior housing, and housing of different tenure types
  • Development of apartments, condominiums, town-homes, patio homes, micro-housing, and different tenure types where appropriate
  • Where possible, new housing should be incorporated into commercial areas
  • Improved pedestrian and bicycle connectivity is vital to encouraging and supporting all forms of housing throughout the City
  • Designate redevelopment areas and focused resources
  • Locate affordable housing in new employment areas and near commuter rail stations

Significance

Historically, single-family housing has dominated residential construction, with large swings in multi-family construction. Arvada’s historic and current demographics are in large measure a reflection of the current housing stock.

The 2014 Comprehensive Plan shows that the City is aging and getting more diverse in population with desires to age in place or at least in Arvada. More millennials with diverse housing needs creates a demand that is not yet being met to the degree needed in the community. 

Enhancements to the Comprehensive Plan will assist in providing a foundation for a variety of housing types and densities, which is  important to accommodate all age groups and housing desires for the future.
