Clinging to the past

As downvalley, Snowmass, Burlingame, etc., etc., etc., all develop, the S-curves will be a great example of people clinging to the past in some romantic attempt to keep Aspen the way it WAS.

I respect and appreciate the desire, but wishing Aspen and the valley would stop changing is like wishing that you would stop aging. Sounds great, and you can do it all you want, but it ain’t gonna happen.

You’re either getting better or getting worse, and in my view the modified-direct is a way to improve the traffic situation and the trails network ? I’m voting for getting better.

P.S. I don’t live anywhere near either alignment.
