A bad deal

Dear Editor:

Pitkin County should not endorse the Wexner land exchange.

The county commissioners should adhere to two basic principles when asked to consider a proposal transferring ownership of public lands: no net loss of acreage and no loss of public access.

Dale Will, director of Open Space and Trails, has submitted a reasonable alternative to the Wexner group and it was rejected. There is no need for the county to negotiate at this time.

Just say no. Please do not trade a mountain for a hill.

Lucy Hibberd
