Two meetings will be held Wednesday to announce the preliminary findings of a study on the affordable housing options across El Paso County.

The assessment marks another step in Mayor Steve Bach’s plan to end homelessness, which he announced in late January. The city also plans to repurpose millions of dollars for more emergency shelter beds, a day center, increased homeless outreach and more affordable housing options.

Initial results of the Affordable Housing Needs Assessment will be detailed from 4:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. at the Pikes Peak Area Council of Governments, 15 S. 7th St.

A second meeting will be held from 6:15 p.m. to 7:45 p.m. at the Hillside Community Center, 925 S. Institute St.
