The Council resurrected the Vail Local Housing Authority in 2001 after a seven-year absence.

Meetings

The five-member volunteer board meets on the second and fourth Tuesdays of every month at 3pm. Currently, these meetings are held either at the Grand View Room (Lionshead Parking Structure) and via Zoom. In some cases, they are on ZOOM only and will be detailed on the final, posted meeting agenda.
