The dream of building the first Habitat for Humanity house in Aspen has been quashed by the realities of development. Carolyn Sackariason reports.
In 2014, Habitat for Humanity Roaring Fork Valley had its sights set on building a duplex just east of Aspen. It’s where an old A-frame house on Cooper Avenue now sits.
But access issues from Highway 82 and neighbor concerns have derailed the project.
