"The Estes Park EDC has been intricately involved in developing solutions related to workforce housing issues since 2015, most recently in an advisory role to the Visit Estes Park Lodging Tax Exploration Task Force. With combined challenges like Covid, the great resignation, the great migration and the continued loss of our 25 to 45 year old workforce combined with a lack of housing inventory, rising property values and lack of childcare options, our workforce is being squeezed out. This puts the quality of life and the economic sustainability of the Estes Valley at risk. Visit Estes Park's possible ability to collect additional lodging taxes for workforce housing and childcare through the passage of HB 22-1117, offers yet another opportunity to help mitigate our current workforce housing challenges and the Estes Park EDC is proud to be a part of this process."
