The Basalt Town Council voted unanimously Tuesday night to approve a 27-unit development proposed by Habitat for Humanity of the Roaring Fork Valley (HFHRFV) on eight acres adjacent Basalt High School.
The project, Basalt Vista, which has been in the conceptual works since 2015, will consist of nine duplexes and three triplexes. Fifteen of the units would be reserved for teachers employed by the Roaring Fork School District. The remaining 12 units would be made available to Pitkin County workers.
The council agreed to subsidize the project to the tune of $386,000, according to Town Manager Ryan Mahoney.
