Next month, the Aspen Pitkin Housing Authority Board is set to discuss a regulation change reducing the age of dependents that are counted toward household size.

The issue rose to the forefront recently when a four-bedroom home in Aspen Highlands Village was offered through the APCHA lottery for $363,888. As per the regulations, a family size of four or more needs to exist for an applicant to be eligible to bid on a four-bedroom home.

Of the six in-complex bids given top priority in the drawing, two of the households had children who are in college and not living in the valley.
