Private Activity Bonds
The State of Colorado receives private activity bond (PAB) capacity each year and allocates some of it to local governments, including Parker. For 2020, the Town has received an allocation of $2,960,733 in such bonds. Since 2013, the Town Council has given staff direction to assign the Town’s private activity bond capacity to the Douglas County Housing Authority on an annual basis. The Housing Authority uses this allocation to help finance the development of workforce and affordable housing for low and moderate income residents throughout Douglas County. The other municipalities that are members of the Housing Authority have also assigned their PAB capacity to it in past years. Town Council again assigned these bonds for 2020 to the Authority via this resolution.
