The old Adams County Child and Family Services Center will be home to young people leaving foster care under plans approved by county commissioners Tuesday.
The commissioners unanimously approved the rezoning, preliminary development plan and preliminary plat for a 116-unit housing development at the site in unincorporated Adams County at 7401 Broadway. Twelve of the units will be for young people who were once in the foster system, according to a statement from the county.
Unison Housing Partners, the county’s housing authority, is to create a final development plan and plat for the commissioners to review later this year.
The housing units will be created within the old headquarters of the child and family services department, which moved to the new Adams County Human Services Center in Westminster in 2017. Four new buildings also will go up. Raised garden beds, two playgrounds, a basketball court, a barbecue area and rooftop are among the planned amenities.
