Dear Editor:We were all so excited that construction hours in Aspen were to be reduced as of July 1. How disappointing to find out a couple of weeks later that it only applies to new projects permitted after July 1. To me this defeats the whole purpose of the new ordinance. What about the next couple of years? It’s the current projects that are driving us all crazy.We are living in construction hell. No one thought about the reality of living near these huge construction projects during their approval process. Who knew? Live and learn. A mistake was made, someone needs to step up and fix the situation. I am asking the city council to amend the new ordinance to make it retroactive to include all construction projects currently under way in the city.Valerie MacDonaldAspen
