Application period for West Hills Phase II workforce housing begins Oct. 2

Summit County and West Hills LLC announced the start date for the application process for West Hills Phase II, a 41-unit workforce-housing development in Keystone's Wintergreen neighborhood. Summit Combined Housing Authority will begin accepting applications from prospective buyers on Oct. 2, with the application deadline on Nov. 2.

West Hills Phase II will offer some of the lowest-priced for-sale workforce housing in the Summit County market, with prices set to be affordable to workers earning 70 to 110 percent of area median income. The development includes eight three-bedroom townhomes, six two-bedroom townhomes and 27 two-bedroom condominium units.

"We're really excited to take another step forward in meeting the workforce housing needs in the Keystone area," County Commissioner Thomas Davidson said. "By providing for-sale housing at these AMI levels, we're able to offer local workers the opportunity to put down roots and call Summit County home for the long haul."

The new neighborhood will include a number of home features and amenities designed to enhance quality of life for local workers. The townhomes have storage space, decks and garages. Three of the condominium units are ADA accessible. The common amenities for West Hills include a pavilion gathering area, play fields, a natural play area for children, community gardens and trail loop connections. The site is conveniently located close to Keystone Resort, with access to two Summit Stage public transit routes, Keystone Resort shuttle buses, recreational trails and the Snake River Recpath.

Applications for prospective West Hills Phase II homebuyers will be available on the Summit Combined Housing Authority website (SummitHousing.us). The housing authority will begin accepting applications on Oct. 2 with an application deadline of noon on Nov. 2. The new homes will be available for occupancy in summer or fall of 2019.
