This affordable housing project has a new home, go to AspenLumberyard.com to participate in the third round of outreach and learn about the project.

The City of Aspen is looking for your input and collaboration to create a vision for affordable housing development on the Lumberyard property adjacent to the Airport Business Center.

Visit AspenLumberyard.com and take the ten minute survey and register for the virtual open house on October 15th at 12PM and 6PM. Influence the Lumberyard affordable housing project by participating in this pivotal planning process.

Property History
In 2008, the City used affordable housing funds to purchase approximately 7 acres at the BMC West lumberyard. A lease was offered to a new lumber sales company through mid-2025 while the City banked the land until Council was ready to pursue an affordable housing project there. The mini storage lot, an adjacent 3 acre parcel, was purchased in 2019 to create a contiguous 10 acre property.

Location
The parcel is between Buttermilk and the Airport Business Center at the base of Deer Hill, just east of the Mountain Rescue building. See map in the Document Library.

The Process

This project is a direct response to the City of Aspen’s initiative to create more affordable housing. The project team has been engaging with the neighbors, stakeholders, technical advisors, and community-at-large since last summer to learn about the priorities and concerns related to the potential development of the project site. Through 2020 we will be developing additional layers of information to support decision-making, including engineering studies, building design, character images, and site plans. Our goal is to have a preferred master plan selected by City Council at the end of this year. Throughout 2020 we will continue to provide a variety of opportunities for community feedback. The project will continue well past the end of this year.

Community Input – Framing the Future
The public is encouraged to share ideas and feedback on the qualities they’d like to see in the housing development, types of units, types of people the project will serve, and more. Go to AspenLumberyard.com to leave feedback and be on the lookout for future open houses.

    If you were City Council deciding on the look and feel for the build environment on this property, what would you create on this property?  What limitations and opportunities would you consider?
