Updates on Planning Information Request and Review Timelines

We want to provide you with an update on the current time needed for the planning office to respond to requests for information and process certain applications.  We have been working with reduced staff over the last few months, as well as managing some large projects, all of which have impacted our ability to respond as quickly as is standard.  For the time being, if you need information, pre-applications, business license reviews, etc, please note the following timelines for review.

  • Business license review - 1 week
  • Pre-applications - 2 weeks
  • Miscellaneous information requests - 2 weeks
  • Planner of the day inquiries - 48 hours for initial return of phone call or email; please note that specific information that requires research or additional work may take up to 2 weeks. 
In addition, review times for administrative land use cases currently take 4-6 weeks once deemed complete, and at this time all review bodies are booking into September. 

Our Planner of the Day walk-in, phone, and email hours remain the same:
As always, if you have any questions or comments, please feel free to reach out at Jessica.Garrow@cityofaspen.com
