Employee Housing Guidelines
Each year the Aspen/Pitkin County Housing Authority (APCHA) establishes Guidelines which govern the development of, admission to and occupancy of deed restricted employee housing units for Aspen and Pitkin County. The Guidelines support APCHA goals and are not intended to supersede City or County Land Use Codes or the Uniform Building Code.
The Mission of the Aspen/Pitkin County Housing Authority (APCHA) is to advocate, promote and provide the long-term supply of desirable and affordable workforce housing to strengthen the community and local economy.
For ease of reading and navigation, the Employee Housing Guidelines are split into sections and appendices. However, because of the interdependence of the many aspects of the program with others, one must look at the Guidelines holistically to understand the fully APCHA workforce housing program.
The first edition of the Employee Housing Guidelines was created in 1985, and a new edition has been amended and approved almost every year since.
