ASPEN, Colo. (AP) - A proposal aimed at freeing up space in Aspen and Pitkin County's affordable-housing program for seasonal workers is making progress.
The proposal would allow a retiree who owns their affordable housing unit to leave their home for up to six months of the year as long as they lease their home to a qualified local employee. Currently, they are required to live in their home for at least nine months.
According to the Aspen Times, the issue before the Aspen City Council and county commissioners is subject to the number of people who will actually retire once they hit retirement age.
