“Area residents participated in virtual meetings this week regarding a proposed 54-unit supportive housing development planned for a vacant plot northeast of the Loveland Police and Courts Building.
Archdiocesan Housing, a ministry of Catholic Charities of Denver, arranged the meetings and will manage the project, which vice president of development Justin Raddatz hopes will be ready to welcome its first tenants by April 2023.
The housing complex on Hayes Avenue would serve individuals transitioning out of homelessness not only by being affordable — tenants would pay at least $25 or 30% of their income each month — but also by offering on-site case management and other services designed to promote stability.
Archdiocesan Housing approached the Loveland City Council last month to share details of its proposal, which was warmly received by the majority of council members. The city’s Affordable Housing Commission also voted unanimously to recommend the project to the council in July.
Between Monday and Wednesday, the organization held three open houses to explain the proposal and field questions from residents in the surrounding area, which was divided into three “zones.”
Christian Pritchett of BlueLine said that, based on a study of supportive housing developments across the Front Range, less than 7% of residents would own vehicles.“
