To ensure our land widely benefits generations of today and tomorrow, we will create, preserve and advocate for housing that is permanently attainable for a diversity of income levels.
How Do We Work?
Through positive, proactive civic engagement. We organize, educate and innovate. We help citizens know each other, learn together and transform settled or “working” lands to embody our values of justice, beauty, ecological health and widely-shared prosperity.
What Do We Do?
Goose Creek CLT develops and promotes permanently affordable mixed income housing amidst safe, beautiful, sustainable neighborhoods and vibrant public spaces connected to the community especially by transit, walking and biking. Goose Creek CLT projects increase the quality of life in their neighborhoods.

External-projects goals for 2017

2. North St. EcoDistrict: Develop a plan, with high local acceptance and financing in place, to build a model gentle infill win-win project: a beautiful, mixed income community linked to the City primarily by low carbon transportation demonstrating how to add diversity AND a higher quality of life for everyone: residents, neighbors and the City as a whole. Get City approval for the first project at 730/750 North St.
3. Advocacy for Housing: Develop broad public support for a plan to follow up our brilliant, innovative Open Space success: invest now to steward our "working" or settled lands. Preserve our greatest asset: a diverse, innovative community. Make a substantial amount of all Boulder housing permanently attainable to 60-150% AMI by 2030. Achieve approval from Boulder County and city councils in the County of a “Innovate for Impact” initiative to build 200 units of housing experiments within 24 months with proposals from neighborhoods, business owners, and for-and non-profit housing developers to demonstrate the best ways forward.
