4.) How do you see Northglenn best taking advantage of the economic boom in Metropolitan Denver?

Prioritizing projects eligible for grants or other means of funding. The City to strive in attracting new quality oriented enterprises interested relocating to the north suburban area.The revival or future change of the Marketplace.

5.) What is the city’s role in encouraging the development of quality housing that is available for affordable costs?

At present Northglenn CR-83 provides and allocates funds for the Colorado Housing and Finance Authority in supporting qualified residential/rental properties for medium and low-income families and households. Additionally, I am concerned the so called “economic boom “ will displace and harm senior citizens living within a limited income. The home exemption is only a property tax relief approved each year by the Colorado Legislature! The City should be concerned and pursue future remedies to curtail the increase of homeless people already present in Northglenn.
