Basalt is just down highway 82 from Aspen.  It has experienced development and growth on the west side of the river.  The Gold Medal waters on the way to Ruedi Reservoir, and the extensive farm to table scene in the area make it invaluable to protect the enviroment as the community builds and grows. 

Information on building can be found here. There is a wealth of information here such as construction in areas of wildlife hazard, covid business safety plan requirements and the permit applications. 

Any new member of the community should check out Basalt’s guidelines on water

Chapter 18 of Basalt’s municipal code relates to construction. 

County lines cut through Basalt, so you may find yourself in Eagle County or Pitkin County and that can have an impact on your transfer tax at the closing table.
