The Grand County Housing Authority recently announced it will internally manage the Silver Spruce Apartments in Kremmling and Grand Living Solar Senior Homes in Granby.

The low income housing for seniors over 62 years of age or those with disabilities under 62 years of age, has always been owned by the Grand County Housing Authority, but the Housing Authority subcontracted to Senior Housing Options for over 20 years.

Sheena Darland, Director of the Grand County Housing Authority, stated, “In accordance with the Housing Authority mission, the Housing Authority Board decided to bring the management of Silver Spruce Apartments and Grand Living Senior Homes in house effective January 1, 2019.”

“There is a lot of work and changes in front of us. Ultimately, I just want the residents to be happy. We have to do what’s right for them,” said Darland.
By offering localized management, Darland projects there will be more direct services and less financial cost.

“This is fiscally responsible,” Darland commented. “Properties as old as ours need work and hopefully the savings will translate into upgrades.”
She also hopes to work more within the community and offer information to locals and those in the mountain regions about housing opportunities.
“I want these properties to have a small community feel. I also think we can serve our veterans better,” said Darland.

Amy Cordova, currently employed by the Senior Housing Options as the property manager of Silver Spruce Apartments and Grand Living Solar Homes, will continue to be retained as the property manager and will become a Grand County Housing Authority employee.
Cordova, worked for nine years at Cliffview Assisted Living Center as a floor manager and applied for the property management position after Marty Pexton retired in May.

“I look forward to learning more in my role in subsidized housing management,” Cordova said and then expanded, “It will be nice to have the management company accessible locally for day-to-day operations.”
