Letter: A remarkable plan for the old art museum space

A remarkable plan for the old art museum space

I want to share that this past week I had the pleasure of attending my first Aspen City Council meeting. Not my typical idea of Monday night fun, but I attended to show support for some close friends who are trying to do some really remarkable things here in the Roaring Fork Valley. Duncan Clauss and Willis Brown of the Aspen Brewing Co. along with Dave Cook and Spencer McKnight of Aspen 82 have put together a compelling presentation for the council to consider for the old Aspen Art Museum building. You can check it out at http://aspenpowerplant.com/ (watch the video, too).

I am inspired by their courage and entrepreneurial spirit. I truly believe in what they are trying to build and look forward to supporting them at the public-comment period at the next council meeting Tuesday. For this project to be selected, it will take a diverse show of support from all ages, professions and demographics from the valley. Our peer group has been outspoken in our support for this but I would like to encourage everyone to check out this proposal and consider supporting this project and if you’re so inclined, joining us at 4 p.m. Tuesday to share your thoughts on the project.
