Speak up on transportation

Dear Editor:

When Mick Ireland, Jack Johnson, Steve Skadron, Dwayne Romero, Jackie Kasabach and most of the other candidates ran for mayor and City Council, the campaign promises centered around solving the Entrance to Aspen congestion, gridlock, greenhouse gases and pollution. So what has happened in the last two years to solve this 40-year old problem?

After taking much public comment and actually listening to what community members thought were good ideas, the city moved forward with getting more information on the split shot, the reversible lanes, the straight shot and the Aspen aerial connection between downtown Aspen, Buttermilk, the airport and Aspen Highlands.

You are invited to the transportation open house in Aspen City Council chambers on Thursday, from noon to 2 p.m and 4 to 6 p.m., to look at and give your comments on the options which most probably will be put to a vote in November.

Many thanks to Mayor Ireland, Jack Johnson, Steve Skadron, Dwayne Romero and Jackie Kasabach for allowing this opportunity.

Toni Kronberg
