SCHA’s Formation & Governance
The SCHA was formed in 2006 as a multijurisdictional housing authority pursuant to Section 29-1-204.5, Colorado Revised Statutes, as amended. The SCHA operates as a separate governmental entity and a political subdivision and public corporation of the State of Colorado. The SCHA was formed by an intergovernmental agreement between its member jurisdictions:
- Town of Breckenridge
- Town of Dillon
- Town of Frisco
- Town of Montezuma
- Town of Silverthorne
- Summit County
The SCHA is governed by a board of directors comprised of one director and one alternate from each of the member jurisdictions above. The SCHA board generally meets on the fourth Wednesday of each month at the Summit County Commons building in Frisco. All board meetings, with the exception of executive sessions, are open to the public as authorized in the Colorado Open Meetings Law. All meeting notices and agendas shall be posted in the south foyer on the main level of the Summit County Courthouse, as well as in the lobby of the SCHA office.
