Staf report

Aspen-Pitkin County Housing Director Tom McCabe has announced plans to retire in October, according to a statement issued Thursday by the city of Aspen. McCabe has held his post for nine years.

“It has been a rewarding and fulfilling challenge,” McCabe said in the statement. “I am proud of the work I’ve done, which has included several important legal victories, increased enforcement, upgrading city-owned properties and offering diverse educational offerings for prospective and current renters and owners. I like Rosalynn Carter’s quote: ‘There is nothing more important than a good, safe, secure home.’ It is a foundational need.”

In its statement, the city said that some of McCabe’s “greatest accomplishments include: consistent and reliable enforcement, victory in the Meyerstein lawsuit, leading the charge and writing (House Bill) 1017, which became law and a crucial factor in the success of affordable housing, significant upgrades at Truscott, which include landscaping and safety, and assisting homeowners’ associations in understanding their rights and obligations and how to better prepare for their financial future.”

The city has started a national search. The position pays $77,400 to $104,155 per year. McCabe’s salary is $92,872.
