Over the last year, BendonAdams has been assisting the Aspen Fire Protection District in conducting community outreach and developing a proposal for the development of an affordable housing development near the North Forty Subdivision in the Aspen Business Center. The project is intended to provide housing for current volunteer firefighters, staff, and new recruits. The project has applied for a Location and Extent review, which will be reviewed in front of the Planning and Zoning Commission. Previously, BendonAdams worked with the AFPD to develop a new substation at the Starwood Subdivision outside of Aspen. Working closely with the Metro Fire District and Homeowners Association, BendonAdams assisted the AFPD in gaining entitlements for the new property which has increased the fire and emergency response coverage to the McClain Flats area and add much-needed emergency personnel housing to the Roaring Fork Valley. BendonAdams worked with Charles Cunniffe Architects to coordinate Location and Extent review requirements in order to gain approvals through the Board of Commissioners. Construction has been completed.
