Poll: Who should take over the Old Power House building

With a decision expected soon on the applicants vying to move into the soon-to-be-vacant Old Power House building, this week’s poll question asks readers which proposal should win.

Go to http://www.aspentimes.com, on the left side below the news carousel, to find this week’s question and the results of previous polls.

Last week’s poll question — “Do you think the city’s quest to become an uphilling destination is a worthwhile endeavor?” — brought in 1,015 votes.

The majority of votes were “no” votes. Nearly 59 percent, or 598, said “no” because Aspen offers so much already and doesn’t need uphilling for a boost. Another 150 votes, or nearly 15 percent, said “no” because people already think of Aspen as an uphilling destination, so this endeavor is a waste of time. About 23 percent of the votes, or 234, said “yes” because it will diversify the economy and help the Aspen brand. The remaining 33 votes, or roughly 3 percent, said “I don’t know.”
