Building on the strong momentum of the Eagle River Valley’s multiple efforts across private and public sectors to create a healthy community by delivering incremental housing projects, the YIMBY Jamboree will take place Thursday, Jan. 17 at Donovan Pavilion.
The 2019 YIMBY Jamboree is a follow-up to the 2017 NIMBY Jamboree. This year’s one-day event is also the final day of the U.S. Mountain Community Summit, which begins earlier in the week and focuses on housing solutions in 26 U.S. mountain regions.
“Given our momentum in housing and the continued need for more to help retain community members and support our business community, we are ex-cited to be a part of a deeper dive into solutions-based presentations and panel discussions to address the affordability gap in resort-based mountain towns,” said Chris Romer, CEO of the Vail Valley Partnership and a member of the Eagle County Housing Task Force.
In collaboration with APX1, Vail Resorts, Town of Vail, RCLCO and Vail Valley Partnership, the three-day summit brings private and public sector stakeholders together from 26 mountain communities, including real estate developers, land planners, business leaders, policy makers and impact investors.
The YIMBY Jamboree features a $60 event fee and is open to anyone interested in moving the dialogue here locally from NIMBY (“Not in My Back-yard”) to YIMBY (“Yes in My Backyard”) and help facilitate best-practice community building solutions.
