We must find houses for our doctors

Dear Editor:

Several medical practices in town are reaching crisis status for housing. We stand to lose obstetric and family practices if housing is not found. Profits at these and other internal medicine practices in town are limited by insurance companies and are not in keeping with the cost of housing in Aspen. We will lose these valuable resources to our community and to our guests if a solution is not found.

Our City Council is soon to determine if these types of medical practices can inhabit SCI (service, commercial, industrial) spaces. Please contact the City Council members at http://www.aspenpitkin.com as soon as possible. They need to hear from you, if it is important to you to have your doctors in town.
