HPC sets seminars

Aspen Times Staff Report

Local architects, contractors and owners of historic properties (or nonhistoric properties in the historic districts in town) are invited to take part in a series of public meetings sponsored by the Aspen Historic Preservation Commission.

Today, from noon to 1 p.m. in the basement of City Hall, there will be a workshop to formulate ideas for a “licensing program” for contractors working on historic structures.

On Tuesday from 5 to 6 p.m. in the basement of City Hall, there will be a workshop on “new design guidelines which the HPC will use when reviewing applications to alter historic properties or properties located in the Main Street or Commercial Core historic districts,” according to a statement issued by the city.

The final session, to be held in July or August, is to be a day and a half of training on how to restore historic wood windows, led by a contractor experienced in the work who is a contributing editor to the Old House Journal. There will be a fee of $75 per participant and preregistration is required.

For more information call Amy Guthrie, the city’s preservation officer, at 920-5096, or e-mail her at amyg@ci.aspen.co.us.
