Straight from the source

Dear Editor:We regret that so many people in the community have not received clear information on the Aspen Institute’s process and intent with respect to the Walter Paepcke Memorial Building.The Paepcke name will remain on this building, now and always. We are, and will always be, careful and conscious of using the Paepcke name in referring to all activity in the building.That said, we very much respect the views of the Aspen community, our donors and friends. We plan on taking the next year to outline the proposed changes to the building and the grounds including signage, landscaping and opportunities to expand public access to our events. We would then like to share this plan with our board, our supporters and the community at large.Amy MargerumExecutive vice presidentThe Aspen Institute
