Letter: Basalt deserves better

Regarding the Elements by Westin hotel application for Willits Town Center and a quote in Monday’s Aspen Times from consultant Rob Hunden, “The strength of the proposal, Hunden said, is that it’s not ‘the standard old crap.’”

I beg your pardon. I just returned from three weeks in Florida. There was a piece of crap like this proposed hotel on every street corner. It reminded me of why I left the state 50 years ago. Basalt Town Council, we deserve much, much better.
