Visitors need signs

We don’t need to spend a million dollars on a new visitors’ center next to the busiest intersection in town.

We need to make it easier for visitors to find the current one, located in a building the city owns, right next door to the entrance to the parking garage, across the street from the largest park in the city, just yards from the Roaring Fork River, with unfettered views of Red Mountain, Smuggler and Ajax. Aspen at its best!

A start would be to put signage up along the road into the city guiding visitors to the center. We could have the state do this as Route 82 (Main Street) is a state highway.

The signage would be what motorists are accustomed to following ” blue state highway signs with question marks indicating information to be supplied and then, closer into the city, a large blue highway sign with the location of the visitors’ center.
