Letter: Aspen Power Plant is a win-win

The approved Aspen Power Plant proposal, to me, is a no-brainer. Having an affordable place in which Aspenites can congregate and creatively incubate their ideas will not only help to stabilize our transient younger population — it will give more diversity to our city.

And the local TV studio not only will be the siren that celebrates our town in all of its glory but will give the younger members of our community a voice. This proposal will benefit our community on all fronts and should be allowed to play out.
