BASALT REAL ESTATE – Developers aiming to transform Basalt’s flood-prone Pan and Fork Mobile Home Park into a commercial and nonprofit campus are looking to bring Pitkin County on board as a partner. Representatives from the Roaring Fork Community Development Corporation (CDC) met with the county commissioners last week. Their pitch centered around possibly relocating the county’s midvalley health and human services annex to the Pan and Fork redevelopment, as well as potentially partnering with the county on affordable housing at another location where displaced residents could move. There are 38 trailers in the mobile home park. Commissioners have expressed interest in building affordable housing in the Basalt area, and the county is sitting on $10 million in uncommitted housing funds.
