“To afford rent in Centennial - as a single person - I have to work 2 jobs possibly even 3 jobs - - I don't have spouse and do not want roommates. Which unfortunately is the situation I had to go to in order to afford to rent. Rent in Colorado as a whole has gone up since the pandemic over 21%?! If you were not a home owner before, you can't even afford to become one now.”
"I am 77 and had looked for reasonable accommodations as a senior. 55 and over had cost of $2-3000. That would use my savings in a too short time.”
“Centennial has a severely inadequate supply of affordable rental units for low income and middle income residents and workers seeking to live where they work.”
“Perhaps I am reading into this too much, but I get the impression that you have an objective of increasing the amount of affordable housing in Centennial. I believe you should focus on improving the income levels of people so they can afford to live in Centennial. Work on attracting high paying jobs. Work on lowering taxes and inflation so people have more money in their pockets. Teach people how to save and spend their money wisely. Let’s not continue to enable poverty.”

“Less apartments and more options for people to buy in the community. Owners are going to have more at stake than someone looking for the cheapest rent for a few years.”
“We are newly retired, have good retirement income but still, if we had to move now, we would be lucky to find anything to fit our income and future aging needs. I don't even think this is an opinion…”
