Pikes Peak Housing Network (PPHN) was established in 2023 by a group of community leaders who care deeply about Colorado Springs and its lack of affordable and accessible housing for our growing workforce and senior population. In the short time PPHN has been in operation, it has become a respected and valued entity that is working in three key areas to increase the numbers of all types of housing in every neighborhood of our beautiful city.
Our priorities include:
- Advocating for pro-housing policies at the state and local levels of government
- Developing pro-housing messaging for developers, local leaders, and other nonprofits that supports the development of all types of housing in every neighborhood. This advocacy will reduce the vocal opposition to residential housing projects and promote a culture that values and appreciates the need for accessible and affordable housing in our community.
- Become a valued and important resource for all housing data, education, and information.
Colorado Springs has experienced large increases in homes prices and the cost of rental housing. These increases make it difficult for our middle-income workforce to find sufficient housing. These workers include our public safety professionals, healthcare workers, and teachers and it’s so important for us to be providing safe and accessible housing for them; housing that is near their jobs and schools, so they can also reduce their transportation costs.
Most of our neighborhoods contain only family-sized residential homes, making it difficult for seniors to downsize their homes but also remain in their current neighborhoods. PPPH advocates for the development of mixed housing types in every neighborhood, so residents of all income levels and housing needs can find the housing of their choice, in their price range.
Pikes Peak Housing Network is here to advocate for affordable and accessible housing development across our great city and we will partner with others who share this goal and want to make Colorado Springs an accessible and amazing place to live for all.
