• Sept. 26, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. – Galena Street mall, near the information booth

“The intent of the survey is to improve the pedestrian and bicycling experience on sidewalks and pedestrian malls in Aspen,” the city said in a news release Monday. “Survey results will help various city departments better understand whether or not individuals believe bicycles pose a safety threat along sidewalks and pedestrian malls and what type of enforcement they expect.”
