FRISCO — New federal legislation will allow the U.S. Forest Service to sell land to Summit County for a planned affordable housing development.

On Friday, President Barack Obama signed a bill making the 40-acre parcel along Interstate 70 near Frisco and Dillon available to Summit County.

The Summit Daily News (http://bit.ly/1rTRfEQ ) reports the planned Lake Hill development is aimed at providing homes for people who work in the county, including teachers, police officers and firefighters, but commute from elsewhere.

County commissioner Dan Gibbs said the county still needs to get an appraisal and then buy the land before developing a plan for the development. Officials still have to decide whether the units will be rented or owned.
