Applicants for a Habitat for Humanity project in Rifle’s Wapiti Commons might be required to work in Rifle to qualify for approval, following a project discussion Thursday at the Rifle City Council regular meeting.

Located on two parcels near Smith Street and Wapiti Avenue, the Habitat for Humanity project could include 20 deed-restricted residences — 10 townhomes and 10 condominiums, said Jake Ezratty, a Habitat for Humanity project manager.

Ezratty and Carolyn Meadowcroft, Habitat for Humanity’s director of homeowner services and community outreach, appeared before council members Oct. 21 to request a $100,000 building permit and plan review fee waiver. In exchange, the nonprofit organization offered to reserve one of the 20 units for a Rifle city employee.
