We could be efficient, too

Dear Editor:Thanks, Tim, for publicly pointing out this very obnoxious problem (Letters, July 9). These real estate listings are another slap in the face to us middle class citizens, reminding us in color that we can’t afford to live in Aspen.I suggest that Realtors, county commissioners and city council take a look at the July/August 2007 edition of Sierra Club Magazine, page 46. The article is called, “It takes a Village.” This article talks about Sonoma Mountain Village in Rohnert Park, Calif., a planned development by Codder Enterprises, a former shopping-mall builder.I hope that our “village” Realtors, speculators and politicians, will see that it is still possible to make money on efficient homes and sustainable communities.Kim VieiraAspen
