Amid skyrocketing housing prices across our county and along the Front Range, Boulder County Housing Authority is planning to create a community of affordable workforce housing that will help the City of Lafayette and the broader region reach important goals for addressing the lack of housing affordability in the years ahead. The planned housing site is a 24-acre parcel located just southwest of the intersection of 120th Street and East Emma Street in Lafayette.
