Other Construction Related Requirements

In addition to the requirements you will have as a typical business owner; business licenses, sales tax, and obtaining permits, your business should also be aware of several other things if you’re in the construction industry.

Contractor’s License

In addition to your business license, you will be required to obtain a contractor’s license. You can find more information on how to do so on our Obtain a Contractor’s License page.

Permits to Build or Remodel

You will find information about the approval process for your building projects on our Build or Remodel Page.

Grade, Excavate, or Use Public Right of Way

If any of your construction projects are expected to require any grading, excavating, or occupy the public right of way, there are several requirements you will be required to follow. You will find helpful information on our Grade, Excavate, or Use Public ROW page.

Construction Parking Permits

Construction related and service vehicles can obtain vehicle parking permits after they have gone through the building permit and right of way permitting processes. This allows contractors to park in the downtown core and residential areas at a reduced rate. You can find the application and more information on the Project Parking Permits Page.

Use Tax

The City of Aspen has a 2.1% use tax on construction and building materials. Please click here for more information on details around the City’s use tax process.
