A planned Nederland complex that will offer permanently affordable housing for 26 families now has a name — Tungsten Village. Nederland Mayor Kristopher Larsen said that affordable housing, like much of the Front Range, is a challenge for the small town, and not many town board of trustees meetings pass without a story of people like school teachers leaving their jobs because there is nowhere to live in town. Larsen said the town has working to encourage the use of “accessory dwelling units” and a landowner in unincorporated Boulder County has expressed interest in building more affordable housing units. That, Larsen said, would require that land being annexed into Nederland, but the process has been ongoing for more than three years.
