At a work session Tuesday, Pitkin County commissioners discussed plans for spending $2 million generated by the Renewable Energy Mitigation Program, where developers have to pay to offset energy demands.

 

The Community Office for Resource Efficiency recommended several new grants for energy efficiency projects, including over a quarter million dollars to Pitkin County for the landfill and other facilities.

Funding is also slated to go to the Town of Snowmass Village, Habitat for Humanity, Two Rivers Community School and We-Cycle.

The proposals will also be reviewed by the City of Aspen and final approval is still to come.

Aspen native Elizabeth Stewart-Severy is excited to be making a return to both the Red Brick, where she attended kindergarten, and the field of journalism. She has spent her entire life playing in the mountains and rivers around Aspen, and is thrilled to be reporting about all things environmental in this special place. She attended the University of Colorado with a Boettcher Scholarship, and graduated as the top student from the School of Journalism in 2006. Her lifelong love of hockey lead to a stint working for the Colorado Avalanche, and she still plays in local leagues and coaches the Aspen Junior Hockey U-19 girls.
