Colorado is at a crux. As more people are drawn to its natural beauty and relaxed lifestyle, the less those qualities shine through. On the other hand, if these qualities are too highly valued, communities can very well price themselves out of it.

No city is currently struggling with this conundrum more than Longmont. Since its founding, Longmont has been a rural town clearly distinct from its more urban counterparts in Boulder, Fort Collins, and Denver. That line, however, is quickly blurring as populations boom and real estate costs skyrocket.

No sign is more evident of this coming change than the city council updating its zoning and land development codes for the first time in 17 years.

Though the new codes were officially enacted in September, the first development proposals making use of these new allowances are now being reviewed by Longmont Planning and Development Services, providing a glimpse into future.

Nine months after Denver launched a housing program that drew national headlines for its innovative approach to helping lower-income families, it’s serving nowhere near the 400 families Mayor Michael Hancock envisioned.

So far, it’s more like three families.

Stateline, a publication of Pew Charitable Trusts, first reported the figure this week. Another four households have signed leases but haven’t yet moved into their units, and seven more are interested, said city housing staffer Laura Brudzynski.

“We really wanted to make sure that we were launching this program very intentionally and thoughtfully,” she said in an interview. “We are working to house folks as fast as we can, but also appropriately and with all of those details ironed out.”

The LIVE program is now expected to serve 125 households eventually.

It’s similar in concept to the federal Section 8 voucher program. But LIVE targets higher-income earners — those making 40 to 80 percent of area median income, which is up t..
