NOTE*** THIS PROGRAM IS DIRECTED TOWARD PERMITS SUBMITTED TO THE ASPEN BUILDING DEPARTMENT FOR REVIEW AND APPROVAL PRIOR TO JUNE 22, 2009.

As of June 19th, 2002, all building permit applications must include a completed Aspen Pitkin Efficient Building (APEB) Checklist. If the project includes a remodel and/or demolition/deconstruction, then the Deconstruction Plan form must be filled out in addition to the Checklist.
The APEB Program is designed to educate the public and the building trades about utilizing resources more efficiently. Flexibility is built into the program to accommodate a wide range of alternatives to create better buildings. The program addresses the reduction of construction waste, promoting recycled and renewable resources, energy efficiency, indoor air quality, renewable energy, water conservation, as well as efficient building techniques.
The program is point-based. The number of points required is based on the size and type of the project. For this voluntary compliance period, the project is not required to achieve its required number of points as outlined in the APEB Guidelines. However, the applicant is encouraged to use the Guidelines when completing the Checklist. A Resource Guide has also been developed in conjunction with this program, to assist in finding suppliers and other information.
Thank you for your cooperation in making this program a success in creating better buildings.
