The City of Aspen and Pitkin County have passed new guidelines for affordable housing homeowners. The guidelines require that dues to homeowners’ associations be paid on time and in full and expand the area where owners and renters of deed-restricted property cannot own other residential property.
“In order to continue to live in affordable housing, owners must make timely payments of all home owners’ association dues,” said Cindy Christensen, operations manager for the Aspen Pitkin County Housing Authority. “As staff, we have worked out an administrative framework to deal with these types of violations, and now we are prepared to enforce a new administrative process for homeowners in arrears of their dues.”
The Aspen Pitkin County Housing Authority has also expanded the area where owners and renters of deed-restricted property cannot own other residential property.
The area is now called the Ownership Exclusion Zone and refers to any developed residential property that has an address within the Roaring Fork River Drainage situated in Eagle, Pitkin, Garfield or Gunnison counties, or within the Colorado River Drainage from and including the unincorporated No Name area to and including Rifle, and including, but not limited to, the towns of Aspen, Basalt, Carbondale, El Jebel, Glenwood Springs, Marble, Meredith, New Castle, No Name, Redstone, Rifle, Snowmass, Snowmass Village and Woody Creek.
