The Towns of Winter Park and Granby are seeking qualified applicants to apply to represent each town on the board of the new Fraser River Valley Housing Partnership, which will address the workforce housing shortage in Grand County.

“Our desire is to find applications from people who are knowledgeable about workforce housing (and) have the ability to work collaboratively with our partners to put together complex deals for advancing workforce housing. And then we are looking for someone that can be an outspoken advocate for the newly formed regional housing authority,” Town Manager Keith Riesberg said during the May 3 Council Meeting.

Qualifying applicants for both towns

While those interested in serving as representatives are not required to be a Town of Winter Park or Granby resident, they must live in Grand County.

Anticipated time commitment of applicants

During initial formation months, the board members will be asked to meet biweekly for a two-hour period with the Working Group that has facilitated the formation of the partnership until this point.

As the entity achieves a primary funding stream and brings on a staff person, it is anticipated the time commitment could decrease.

The initial appointments will be for either a two-year or four-year appointment.

The board for the housing partnership will consist of seven members.

Four will be appointed by the participating governments (Fraser, Granby, Winter Park and Grand County) and three will be at-large members of the communities.

Applications for the Town of Winter Park representative are available at the Town of Winter Park’s homepage and are due by 5 p.m. on May 13 to Riesberg at

Applications for the Town of Granby representative are available at and are due by 5 p.m. on May 19 to Ted Cherry,
