Montrose City Council Meeting December 6, 2022

On this Local Motion, we visit Montrose, where we take a closer look at some efforts being made toward affordable housing. KVNF's Cassie Knust sits down with Jace Hochwalt, the Planning Services Manager for the City of Montrose. Jace delves into his definition of affordable housing as a city planner, some creative solutions he’s learned about, and what the city is doing to tackle this issue impacting communities across the country.

Cassie moved to Montrose from Texas in April 2020, right before COVID changed the landscape of the world as we knew it. She brought her love of people and a degree in broadcast journalism to the Western Slope, where she built a strong foundation in local print news. She’s excited to join the KVNF family and grow as a reporter. For Cassie, her job as a journalist is to empower the community through knowledge and information. When she’s not researching and reporting, Cassie loves to spend time with her cat, Jasper, and paint something new.<br/><br/>
