ASPEN, CO – After months of work by the APCHA board and staff, the Aspen City Council and Pitkin County Board of County Commissioners ratified the Aspen Pitkin County Housing Authority’s (APCHA) 5-Year Strategic Plan. Ratification marks official approval of a new era for the APCHA program, organization and community.
With the release of the Strategic Plan, the APCHA board outlines five primary goals to work on over the next five years. The Strategic Plan’s five goals are intended to achieve APCHA’s newly revised mission statement to support affordable workforce housing for a sustainable community and a prosperous economy.
“The ratification of the strategic plan allows APCHA to get to work on supporting the housing priorities of our community,” said Mike Kosdrosky, Executive Director of APCHA. “The strategic plan helps instill clear direction and discipline around the organization and program, basically everything from what we do, how we do it and when we do it.”
The Plan acknowledges the importance of HomeTrek, a state-of-the-art digital information management system, in guiding the program’s future. HomeTrek will help bring APCHA fully into the digital information age and allow customers to securely perform most transactions online 24/7.
The Plan’s five goals will help establish future annual priorities and workplans driving much of the day to day work of staff for upcoming years. The goals also will be used to define APCHA’s future annual budget requests.
According to the updated Intergovernmental Agreement (IGA) in 2019 establishing APCHA, a strategic plan must be adopted within the first year and then updated at least once every five years by the Board. As required by the IGA, the City and County must ratify the Board’s recommended strategic plan.
