Lighten up

For crying out loud, the article on street signs in Thursday’s paper is an embarrassment.

Aspen, lighten up. Business people are starving. You’re losing sales tax revenue and now that people have come up with a creative way to attract business and better serve our visitors, you are shutting them down.

I suggest a moratorium on signs that are out of compliance or a change to the ordinance that works for tax paying businesses and visitors. It’s time we work together.

Do it now!
