Vail’s Vision

"To be the Premier International Mountain Resort Community"

Housing Department Vision

The Town of Vail is the resort community leader in ensuring the availability of homes for year-round Vail residents. Year-round residents, along with their homes, prove critical to maintaining and sustaining the premier international mountain resort community. In Vail, homes for residents are seen as infrastructure - a community support system - not unlike roads, bridges, water and sewer and similar services delivered by municipal government.

Housing Department Mission

"Realizing Vail’s Vision One Deed-Restriction at a Time."

The Housing Department exists to advocate and advance the Town’s vision as the leader amongst mountain resort communities in ensuring the availability of homes for year-round Vail residents. We preserve and protect existing and future homes for resident occupancy by acquiring deed restrictions obtained through public/private partnerships, strategic initiatives, regulatory obligations, innovative programs and collaboration within the community and the region.

Housing Lottery

Since 1996, the town has helped more than 180 local employees purchase homes within Vail’s boundaries. There are currently 730+ deed-restricted rental and for-sale employee housing units within the Town of Vail.
