The Thornton City Council adopted the 2010 Thornton Housing Master Plan on July 13, 2010 to replace the original Housing Master Plan adopted by City Council on October 23, 2000 and as a supplement to the 2007 Thornton Comprehensive Plan. The Housing Master Plan is intended to provide direction and vision to implement a key goal of the 2007 Comprehensive Plan, which is to make Thornton a city of quality and diverse neighborhoods.
This Plan provides an overview of current housing conditions in Thornton, as well as numerical data and exhibits intended to form a basis for comparison of housing-related issues over time. Specific priority housing strategies and action steps recommended for implementation over the next five years are identified in Chapter 7. The strategies focus on achievable approaches to balancing Thornton’s identified housing needs within the constraints of the current downturn in the economy and housing market. The City will update the Housing Master Plan approximately every five years to assess accomplishments and set new priorities based on changing market and demographic conditions.
Note: The 2010 Housing Master Plan was amended on July 12, 2011 for the purpose of incorporating an Affordable Housing Policy as Appendix B.
