Previous Occupancy Studies#

In 2016, the City was asked to consider soliciting another study to determine both the effectiveness of the ordinance as well as potential unintended consequences. In 2017, in partnership with Colorado State University (CSU), the Associated Students at Colorado State University (ASCSU), the Board of Realtors (BOR), and neighbors a scope of study was created. Corona Insights was chosen to conduct the study which began in 2018 and was coordinated to work around the academic school year.

Study scope:

Primary questions to be answered

  1. Has the occupancy ordinance had an impact on neighborhood quality?
  2. Does the occupancy ordinance impact the affordability of housing?

 Information on short term rental impacts was also included.

This study, is intended to be a snapshot in time of the rental market and the forces that affect it, with comparisons over time from which the City and the community can identify trends.
