406 Forum: Penny for Housing

Avatar photo



On Jan. 27, the Big Sky Resort Tax Board voted to continue the legislative effort on a “Penny for Housing” bill.

If the legislation passes and a ballot measure is put before voters, would you vote in favor of a 1-percent increase in resort tax for workforce housing? Why or why not?

“I would say yes, because we really need it in Big Sky. We want the workforce to be a part of our community and not be pushed out—we need affordable housing in order for that to be possible.”

“I would say no, because first I want to see the full plan. If I’m going to pay into the program, I want to know that my employees are going to be able to utilize the program.”

“I would vote for it, because I think it’s important to keep this community going. It’s booming right now and we need to keep it growing to keep our own lives going. But I think the tax needs to be dispersed in a way that it doesn’t become a burden for our community [members].”

“I would vote for it, but I think it’s important to identify the right location for affordable employee housing. I don’t necessary feel like the Mountain Village is the right place for it with its high property values.”
