Traffic blight

Dear Editor:Does anyone on these transportation study bodies have a clear and written account of all the studies, meetings, memos, consultant comments and in-house staff hours spent on Aspen/Pitco transportation planning since 1970?What is the total sum of funds spent on this subject over the past 35 years?Your report on this coming transportation meeting is an account of ignorance in action. The devil in the details isn’t the point.The point is that the public decision-making process is irrational. The community has weakened itself by putting off a solution to traffic blight in Aspen. Note how the trend followed by the private sector supplies its clients with parking in Aspen. Be brave comrade.KNCB MooreSanta Barbara, Calif.
