The San Miguel Regional Housing Authority (SMRHA) sits in Telluride in breathtaking southwest Colorado. San Miguel County (pop. 8,000, 1,289 sq. mi.) has stunning scenic beauty and a rich, colorful history. Approximately one third of the county’s population lives in some form of deed-restricted housing.
Affordable housing is regulated by the three jurisdictions, San Miguel County, the Town of Telluride, and the Town of Mountain Village, under their respective development codes, and their associated housing authorities. Through a series of inter governmental agreements dating to 1997, the SMRHA serves as the administrative arm of these entities, enforcing deed restrictions and managing various programs. The FY 2019 approved budget of $340,000 supports 3.5 FTEs, including the Executive Director.
The Director reports to the three-member SMRHA board of directors: the county manager and two town managers. The next Director will be asked to bring the organization to a streamlined, efficient, high-functioning level within the first year.
A four-year degree in a relevant field of study, such as business administration or management, and five years of management-level experience in housing-related or nonprofit organizations are strongly preferred. Significant related work experience, in addition to supervisory responsibilities, may be substituted for degree requirements. Housing counseling and homebuyer education training experience, with certification are preferred. Residency in San Miguel County is required. Comprehensive benefits. The hiring range is $85,000 to $105,000 DOQE.
