Website The Fraser River Valley Housing Partnership
The Fraser River Valley Housing Partnership (FRVHP) offers the chance for an entrepreneurial professional to be the first Executive Director of their recently formed housing authority. The primary role of the Executive Director will be to develop and implement a strategy to facilitate the development of workforce housing units to benefit year-round residents.
ABOUT THE REGION
The Fraser River Valley is in Grand County, Colorado, a mountain community with nearly 16,000 residents. Grand County is home to the headwaters of the Colorado River, the Winter Park and Granby Ranch Ski areas, as well as abundant public lands and wilderness areas including world renowned Rocky Mountain National Park. Rocky Mountain National Park, less than an hour from the Fraser Valley, is a haven for outdoor enthusiasts and averages 3 million visitors per year, summer being the busiest season for the park.
ABOUT THE PARTNERSHIP
The Fraser River Valley Housing Partnership, a new intergovernmental entity with representatives from the towns of Winter Park, Granby, Fraser, and unincorporated Grand County, began working together in September of 2021 following a joint meeting between the Towns of Fraser and Winter Park. Both the Town of Granby and Grand County joined the working group during that same fall and a draft Intergovernmental Agreement (IGA) was presented to all the participating governments at a joint meeting on March 14, 2022. The approved Intergovernmental Agreement (IGA) officially formed the regional housing authority. The new housing authority, named the Fraser River Valley Housing Partnership (The Partnership) is tasked with addressing regional workforce housing shortages.
The first Executive Director will set the tone, structure, and culture of the newly formed Fraser River Valley Partnership Housing Authority. This leader will be responsible for the overall administration and implementation of programs, initiatives, and new partnerships. In addition, the Director will be tasked with coordinating with the broader community to identify development sites, opportunities for public-private partnerships and to pursue the creation of new deed restricted units and the rehabilitation of existing housing stock.
The Executive Director will be tasked with proactively engaging with Towns and the County to support their housing efforts and providing subject matter expertise, developing budgets and policies to carry out the Board’s objectives through the development of a comprehensive housing plan, and researching and implementing new housing opportunities to meet the needs of Fraser Valley residents.
The ideal candidate for the newly created position of Executive Director for the Partnership will be a self-starter willing to build an organization from the ground-up and have an engaging leadership style that can build a team to maintain open relationships with the Board, local agencies, and citizens on the critical issue of workforce housing with respect, integrity, and inclusivity.
