Letter: Maintaining community integrity

It is to Aspen’s credit that its Community Development Department has been, as is stated, “committed to preserving and restoring historical property and buildings within the city of Aspen for over 30 years.” The aim is to have any changes be compatible with the surrounding structures as defined in the historical guidelines. With that in mind, I urge you to reject many of the variance requests for the Lundy House. They are in no way compatible with the neighborhood, particularly with the historic property built by Herbert Bayer directly next door.

The community is depending upon the City Council to maintain the integrity of that special area of the West End.
