HB10-1017: Affordable Housing Bill, Key to Aspen, Advances at Statehouse

A bill that seeks to uphold local governments’ ability to enforce deed-restricted housing is moving through the House of Representatives, with an affirmative vote passed by a General Assembly committee on Tuesday, The Aspen Times reports. House Bill 1017, sponsored by Rep. Daniel Kagan, passed 6-5, after a four-hour hearing in which Aspen Mayor Mick Ireland, Pitkin County Attorney John Ely, Aspen-Pitkin County Housing Authority (APCHA) attorney Tom Smith and local developer Tim Belinski testified. The bill clarifies that nothing in the rent-control statute shall prohibit or restrict the right of a property owner and a public entity from voluntarily entering into an agreement that controls rent.
