At their May 1st, 2012 meeting, Mayor Joe Gierlach and the Board of Trustees agreed to create a new Mayor’s Task Force on Housing and Human Services. The Task Force focuses on investigating current services and resources available for seniors and low-income families in the Nederland Community and making recommendations for providing or extending additional services and resources.
The Mayor’s Task Force on Housing and Human Services is also tasked with developing the interim steps to achieve the town’s Housing and Human Services goals by the year 2020 as stated by the following Envision 2020 statements:
- By 2020, Nederland has an accessible social service system for community members. The community ensures that its aging population remains healthy, fully-integrated and an active part of the community.
- By 2020, Nederland provides arts and culture, education and community activities that include the entire community and provide opportunities for youth.
Furthermore, Housing and Human Services is the final goal yet to be addressed from the 2010 Peak to Peak Healthy Communities Summit developed in 2003.
