Letter: Keep development small

Please join us at the Keep Aspen, Aspen Petition Signing Party today at Bert and Walt’s home from 5 to 6:30 p.m. at 218 N. Monarch. Come sign the petition and join us for beverages and munchies. You also can sign the petition every day at City Market from 11:30 to 1:30 p.m. or email Blanca O’Leary at blancainaspen@aol.com and I will bring the petition to you for your signature.

If this initiative is approved by the registered electors of Aspen, it will amend the Home Rule Charter to require voter authorization of land-use approvals that exceed the zoning limitations in allowable floor area and maximum height or reduce amount of off-street parking or affordable housing. This applies only to commercial and lodging zones. Single-family and duplex homes are exempt.

We have until Feb. 4 to collect the necessary signatures to have the amendment on the May 5 city election ballot. So please sign as soon as you can.

Blanca and Cavanaugh O’Leary
