VIDEO: Young Professional of the Year Navigator Award goes to Jason Peasley

STEAMBOAT SPRINGS — Jason Peasley is a young professional who is excelling at a job that seasoned executives would find daunting.

Steamboat Springs has been trying to come up with a solution to the affordable housing crisis for decades, and many say the 35-year-old Navigator Award winner for Young Professional of the Year has accomplished a lot to move the needle on that issue in a short period of time.

Peasley has a degree from Michigan State University in urban and regional planning. He worked for five years in the city of Steamboat Springs’ planning department before joining the Housing Authority in 2012 as executive director.

The organization has a goal of building 350 affordable units, 350 seasonal beds and 150 entry-level units.
