We invite you to attend one of the upcoming large group meetings Nov. 15-17 at the Wheeler Opera House. • Monday, Nov. 15, 5:15-6:15 p.m.• Tuesday, Nov. 16, noon-1 p.m.• Wednesday, Nov. 17, 5:15-6:15 p.m.These sessions will include an informational open house, an opportunity to ask questions about the plan, and keypad clicker questions. We will use the feedback received in the small and large group meetings to refine the plan. Make sure your voice is heard! The AACP is a document of critical importance to both the city and the county. It is incorporated in the land-use codes by reference, and is used to set annual budgeting and work program priorities. Can’t attend a meeting? Please provide your comments on our blog (http://aspencommunityvision.blogspot.com/) or on our Facebook page (join the Aspen Area Community Plan Update group). Each of these can be accessed from the “adoption” page on http://www.aspencommunityvision.com.
