Landscaping, Grading, and Excavation projects can occur unexpectedly, and are sometimes tied to a larger building project or are stand-alone projects. However, if you plan to do any of these, there are several things you should know.
You can find all of the applications, details of the process, and other additional information on our Grade, Excavate, Or Use Public Right of Way navigator page.
Landscaping, Grading and Excavation Projects:
The thresholds for the various permit requirementsare listed on our Understand Permit Requirements Page.
Working in the Right of Way:
In addition to the engineering department requirements for building permits, the Engineering Department issues permits that govern activities occurring within the public right-of-way (ROW). Any work performed in the City of Aspen within the ROW requires a permit.
If you are unsure if you are going to be within the ROW, please contact the engineering department to verify.
