Construction for the long awaited affordable housing project on a parcel of land known as Lot 22 — now referred to as Paintbrush — is well underway. Located in the northeast part of Gunnison, adjacent to the Rock Creek development, the proposed plans for Paintbrush call for the construction of 76 rental units configured with three 16-plex, two story buildings and four single-family dwellings adjacent to the existing Rock Creek subdivision.
