No fast-tracking here

Contrary to Sven Alstrom’s letter in The Aspen Times on Sept. 30, the city HAS NOT decided whom to hire to develop either of the Burlingame parcels.

I do believe Sven misunderstood something I said several months ago, and I am sorry he didn’t talk with me to confirm what he thought he heard before he wrote his letter with incorrect information.

The city not only commissioned an in-depth housing analysis, but is developing new housing guidelines, and will soon proceed to establish the process whereby it will select a developer to build the highest quality project.

Quality will not be the victim of “fast-tracking” as Sven alleges. Nor is the city limiting the playing field for architects and contractors.
