RTA expands employee housing with another five-unit project

  • Date: 06/08/2022

As many businesses and organizations across the Gunnison Valley struggle to recruit and retain employees at varying income levels, the Gunnison Valley Rural Transportation Authority (RTA) is working to expand its future housing stock by another 12 bedrooms this year. 

During the June 10 RTA board meeting board members reviewed and approved the provisions of a master lease for the five two-bedroom townhomes it purchased at Lazy K. The RTA will sublease the units to Alpine Express and Alpine will manage the property and rent to employees who work 30 hours per week for the RTA. The rent will be $1,000 for each of the two-bedroom units and is income-restricted; pets will be allowed with an additional deposit and pet agreement. Each unit must be used as a single-family residence, meaning up to two adults and up to three minors or up to three unrelated adults.
