Policies

The Housing Department works directly with the Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) on all policies and strategies affecting affordable workforce housing in Summit County. The Housing Department works closely with other county agencies including, but not limited to, Planning, Building Inspection, Public Works, Open Space and Trails and Road & Bridge. 

The Housing Guidelines (pdf) and Section 3809 of the Summit County Land Use & Development Code (pdf) are the documents that govern and guide Local Resident Housing in Summit County.  

Summit County voters have approved multiple measures over the years to ensure affordable housing for all local residents into the future.
