Letter: Close the floodgates into Aspen

Close the floodgates into Aspen

I was told the environment in Aspen over Christmas was less than pleasant because the town was so incredibly crowded and the visitors were rude and obnoxious. I wish the City Council was capable of weighing the balance between opening the floodgates to increase profit versus being a good steward before all Aspen charm is lost. Aspen has become too large in both high-season winter and high-season summer with 31,000 people. The council is elected to preserve Aspen and its charm, not make decisions based solely on profit and greed.

God help us!
