Dear Editor:

Referendum 1C “The Ryan Parcel Swap” is an Open Space and Trails triumph for the whole county and valley. A yes vote will: Preserve the Ryan Meadow in Ashcroft with USFS ownership, extend the East Aspen Trail platform to Difficult Campground for everyone, protect over 200 acres from development around Redstone, provide permanent fishing access along the Crystal River and insure more of Smuggler Mountain will end up as forever open space.

Vote yes for Referendum 1C.

Howie Mallory
