    SOPRIS SUN: Habitat ReStore gets a new home of its own

    Sharing is caring, as the adage goes, and now there’s a 40,500-square-foot embodiment of the sentiment in the Valley. The new Habitat for Humanity ReStore, 53 Calaway, Ct., officially opened Jan. 19, and it’s been abuzz ever since. “I’m guessing, based on how busy it was, we had to have over 500 people — easy — on Friday and Saturday,” Habitat for Humanity Roaring Fork Valley President Scott Gilbert said of the store’s opening weekend. “It’s kind of like a frenzy.” The organization is calling the new location its “ReStore 2.0.” The expanded space has streamlined the organization’s presence in the Valley, offering a permanent home for administrative and retail staff alike. But that doesn’t mean Gilbert has a corner office hiding somewhere in the store.

    POST INDEPENDENT: ReStore 2.0 opens south of Glenwood Springs

    The ribbon is cut and the store is open for business at Habitat for Humanity Roaring Fork Valley's new ReStore south of Glenwood Springs. A few dozen people crowded into an opening ceremony Thursday afternoon to mark the major progress of this new location — what Habitat staffers are calling ReStore 2.0. The ReStore, though it may not be obvious to those passing by, equals more homes and jobs in the valley, said Scott Gilbert, director of Habitat for Humanity Roaring Fork Valley. Though it is a great place to get discounted household items, the ReStore also is a critical engine that drives Habitat's projects in the valley. "We've always thought of the ReStore as a place to sell recycled stuff, but beyond that, if we can get items at good prices and good prices to customers, we can net more money for building houses," Gilbert said.

It's a home she, alongside other families and volunteers, is helping build. The Beresfords are one of 12 families who will receive a new home in Silt by the end of 2018, thanks to Habitat for Humanity Roaring Fork. In 2000, when Habitat for Humanity Roaring Fork built its first home in the valley, its goal was to provide local low-income children with as many homes as it could. Now heading into 2018, the organization just moved families into its 26th, 27th, 28th and 29th homes in its area from Aspen to Parachute, providing homes for 75 local kids.

    ASPEN DAILY NEWS- Basalt’s contributions to affordable housing pass $1 million mark

    When the Basalt Town Council voted unanimously last week to forgive various development-related fees totaling $186,000 for a 27-unit housing project spearheaded by Habitat for Humanity of the Roaring Fork Valley, it continued a trend that gained institutionalized traction with the release of the town’s housing study in 2015. That study, according to Town Manager Ryan Mahoney, showed that, between 2000 and 2010, the cost of living in Basalt increased by 26.5 percent, while median household income decreased by 2.3 percent. During that same period, the median home value in Basalt increased by a whopping 70 percent.

    About 80,000 people live from Aspen to Parachute. Habitat for Humanity of the Roaring Fork Valley's ReStore brings in $2.35 million in sales annually. That works out to be $29.50 per capita.

    CBS DENVER- Proposed Teacher Housing in Basalt Could Be a 'Game Changer'

    BASALT, Colo. (CBS4) – A groundbreaking idea could lead to a Colorado school district providing the land for Habitat for Humanity to build homes for teachers. The housing crunch in many mountain communities including in the Roaring Fork Valley has school districts scrambling to figure out how to get teachers to work in those expensive communities where average rents are comparable to East Coast cities but salaries are not. The potential partnership could produce 40 affordable housing units in Basalt that would be sold to teachers and other first responders, according to the proposal provided to CBS4 Tuesday. Habitat for Humanity Roaring Fork wants to build 20 duplexes on land owned by the Roaring Fork School District on a bench above Basalt High School. The concept is the school district would provide the land and Habitat would raise the funds for construction, according to Scott Gilbert, president of the local Habitat chapter. Gilbert said about half of the for-sale units would be reserved for teachers because of the school district’s contribution of the land. The other units would go to people who qualify under Habitat’s normal needs assessment. Planners say a key to the project is the partnership with the school district. “For us to make it happen, we have to cut costs somewhere,” Gilbert said. Roaring Fork School District Superintendent Diana Sirko told CBS4 the project has the potential to be a “game changer” for the district. To continue reading click HERE.

    The local chapter of the nonprofit organization intends to sell six vacant lots it owns in the Keator Grover subdivision in Carbondale, according to President Scott Gilbert. That would raise an estimated $85,000 per lot for a total of $510,000.

    The money would help Habitat pursue a team effort with the Roaring Fork School District on an affordable housing project behind Basalt High School. The school district would supply the property while Habitat would raise the funds for construction.

    Basalt Development Projects Could Add 60 Affordable Units ASPEN TIMES

    Two development projects that could combine to provide 60 affordable-housing residences are headed to review by the Basalt Town Council this fall.

    Habitat for Humanity and the Roaring Fork School District are teaming to propose 27 affordable-housing units by Basalt High School. The Town Council gave an informal nod on a critical aspect of the land-use approvals Tuesday night. The five members of the board who were present said they favor expanding the town’s urban growth boundary to accommodate the project.

    The second project entering the council’s den is Stott’s Mill, which earned approval for 110 units in 2009 but stalled in the Great Recession. An expanded project is back with tweaks, including 31 deed-restricted affordable housing units and two additional-units dedicated to the school district. The Basalt Planning and Zoning Commission recommended approval with conditions.
