The city of Aspen is accepting and processing applications from construction professionals who are seeking to re-open a job site that was shut down due to COVID-19 public health orders.

Once open, a job site must adhere to all regular city construction rules, as well as Pitkin County Public Health orders for construction sites, which are available at

All sites must have an approval notice posted onsite and a list of approved sites will be on the city’s website.
