Help shape Aspen’s vision

Dear Editor:Thank you to the 100 or so community members who provided feedback on the draft Aspen Area Community Plan (AACP) during our recent small group meetings. As we near adoption of this plan, we are looking to hear from you, the community. 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. Following the large group meetings, the joint City and County Planning and Zoning Commissions, the City Council and the Board of County Commissioners will hold traditional public hearings, providing another opportunity for public feedback. We look forward to hearing from you on this important document.
