BLM to hold Aspen open house on land exchange

ASPEN – An open house will be held in Aspen on June 13 to discuss the controversial proposal called the Sutey Ranch Land Exchange.

The Bureau of Land Management will host the public meeting from 4 to 6 p.m. at the Sister Cities Meeting Room at Aspen City Hall. An earlier open house was held in Carbondale. Pitkin County, which is opposed to the proposed land swap, requested a second meeting in Aspen.

The BLM is accepting comments on the proposal through June 20, so this will give members of the public a chance to learn about the plan and ask questions. A final decision is anticipated in 2013.
