The article focuses on the success of the local government of Douglas County, Colorado in developing the city. One of the consequences of the rapid growth is the rising housing costs. The jobs-housing gap has affected schoolteachers, firefighters, police, retail employees and service industry workers. The challenge of finding and keeping housing which is affordable to low- and moderate-income seniors was brought into sharp focus. The Douglas County Housing Partnership has acquired the Oakwood Apartments.
