Pagosa Housing Partners (PHP), a new Archuleta County nonprofit, has been tasked by local governments with the job of gathering accurate information about housing issues in the community and one of the key efforts involves a community-wide “Housing Needs Survey” which ends this coming Saturday, Sept. 1.

Archuleta County residents who haven’t yet taken the survey are encouraged to visit the PHP website,, and fill out a short online survey, which takes about five minutes to complete.

All of us realize that housing is becoming a serious problem in Pagosa Springs, but we need to understand the problem better so we can come together and begin to find solutions. We need the participation of many people to help us gather that information through a simple survey.

This survey is for everyone. Please be counted by visiting our website at and clicking on the “take the survey” button.
