2014 APA Colorado Awards

Honor Award – Innovation/Creative Partnerships & Collaborations: The Bike Depot

The seeds of the Bike Depot project were planted in the mid-1990s when a group of residents created the Park Hill Bike Club. They wanted to provide neighborhood youth with alternatives to gang involvement and substance abuse while providing recreational, educational and employment opportunities for neighborhood youth in an atmosphere of friendship, mutual respect and diversity. Financial challenges led the Park Hill Bike Club to cease operations in 2001, but locals never gave up on the dream of a bicycling center in North Park Hill.

Merit Award - General Planning Project: City of Aspen Affordable Housing Credit Program

The City of Aspen has launched an innovative affordable housing credit program that provides a new means for meeting the mitigation requirement of new development, while encouraging the private sector to voluntarily develop affordable housing not required for mitigation purposes. The success of this program is evidenced by the quality of planned housing projects that have resulted from this program, and the increased interest in using credits as mitigation.
