Fish Creek Mobile Home Park
The Fish Creek Mobile Home Park was acquired in the summer of 2007 from Bob and Audrey Enever who owned the park for 27 years. This mobile home park sits on the Yampa River between Steamboat’s mountain ski area and downtown Steamboat Springs. The park has space for 68 mobile homes. In the Yampa Valley Housing Authority’s 2006 Housing Plan, preservation of mobile home parks is a stated goal. Due to the acquisition of the mobile home park by the YVHA, 68 families will be sheltered from having their homes slated for redevelopment.
Fox Creek Village Condominiums
This condominium complex project was developed by the Yampa Valley Housing Authority and sits on Hilltop Parkway with convenient access to public transportation, the core trail, shops and restaurants, and the Yampa River. The 30 units are all 2 bedroom and 2 bathrooms with approximately 1100 square feet of living space. To keep these units affordable into the future, deed restrictions have been added that are targeted to two different Area Median Income categories, 80% AMI and 120% AMI. Twenty units are tied to the 80% AMI and ten units are targeted to the 120%, both have slightly different restrictions placed upon them. The project was completed in September of 2006 and fully sold in April, 2007

Mutual Self Help Housing Program
Under the YVHA predecessor, the Regional Affordable Living Foundation (RALF), 21 homes were built in West End Village (7), Oak Creek (6), and in the Sagewood subdivision in Hayden (8) under the USDA-Rural Development Self-Help Program. Locally the program was called Hands on Housing. In this program, homeowners must provide the labor to build their and their neighbors homes. In 2006, the YVHA Board of Directors determined to discontinue this program until further notification.
West End Village
Originally developed by the Regional Affordable Living Foundation and Tony Connell of Connell Resources, West End Village is a subdivision on the west side of Steamboat Springs targeted to families. This mixed market neighborhood has townhomes, duplexes and single family homes, mixing permanently affordable homes with open market homes. These deed restricted homes are targeted to families making less than 120% of the Area Median Income for Routt County. The conceptual style of the neighborhood employs a neo-victorian approach with garages off alleys and front porches on the homes to foster community and engagement by neighbors. The neighborhood has a park with playground equipment and an open field for field games.
