Revitalizing the dark village
Stewart Oksenhorn, Liv Aspen Art’s Olivia Reische and the Merchants Association of Aspen Highlands gave us a primer Saturday, Aug. 25, on how to revitalize the so-called dark village of Highlands. Rock photography by Stewart at Olivia’s gallery accompanied by the very tight Grateful Dead cover band Shakedown Street with Melvin Seals brought out the locals for an early evening happening.
Using flyers and word of mouth, the plaza was packed like only an end of ski season party could bring out. The photography and the music were great. Now we know how to make Highlands work and attract. This end of summer party was “over the top” as Jim Horowitz loves to say.

Onsite parking won out over a Turkish bath at a new lodge planned to be built across from City Market. Aspen’s elected officials didn’t want to burden the neighborhood with offsite parking for the new hotel.
