Get a freaking clue, just say ‘no’

Dear Editor:There used to be a time when this letter would have been written by me blasting the Aspen City Council and the Planning and Zoning Commission for their over-restrictive implementation of the zoning codes and their application of the GMQS. My god how times have changed!I question whether or not anyone on P&Z or the council is even conscious to the volume and quality of the projects they have been rubber stamping with seemingly total disregard for the original ideals of GMQS and the original character of this town? For God’s sakes you are wearing that “YES” rubber stamp out! It seems any greedy, smarmy outsider with a few million bucks can get ANYTHING approved! Throw in some employee housing mitigation and you could rebuild Mile High Stadium at the base of Aspen Mountain! I yearn for the days when Gerry Hines was raked over the coals for two years trying to get the Highlands approved, and I supported him! P&Z and the Council better get a freaking clue and just say NO! That’s “N” and “O.”Your editorial “Put the brakes on runaway redevelopment” (The Aspen Times, March 15) was spot on.Steve MaroltAspenP.S. Take note Pitkin, Garfield and Eagle counties! Where are you when we finally need you, Mick?
