As the first Habitat for Humanity homeowner in the Roaring Fork Valley, I wanted to share my opinion on the discussion about the Aspen Pitkin County Housing Authority Board members’ interest in partnering with Habitat to build a home with a family in Aspen.
This possibility is fantastic!!!
An unidentified party is prepared to make an offer for the Cooper Avenue lot that Habitat for Humanity has been eying for low-income housing in Aspen.
Greg Gordon, an attorney for Garfield & Hecht P.C., told the Aspen Pitkin County Housing Authority on Wednesday that his client is prepared to make a “substantial offer” for the 1230 E. Cooper Ave. lot — if the property’s deed restriction can be lifted. Gordon said that if removing the covenant proves difficult, his client is fine without making an offer. He did not name the interested party or offer an exact number for the potential offer.
Habitat for Humanity is delighted to recognize six key contributors to the affiliates success in 2013. Helping local families in need of an affordable home takes a village; with volunteers (individuals and businesses) and donors being two of the key pillars to making progress. The third key is the staff.
