Letter: Surprised by opposition

I am writing in regard to the Aspen Power Plant and the recent noise from the minority opposition trying to distract this project, which your council has already supported.

I am a native to Steamboat but called Aspen my home for over 10 years. I still spend a considerable about of time in town, as my flexibility as an entrepreneur allows me to chase the snow and the summers there.

The Power Plant will provide a functional workspace for me and many others like me to run our businesses from the little town we all love so much (and let Ink, Peaches, Victoria’s, etc., operate their businesses, not co-working facilities).

This project is something I could not be more vocal in supporting. It is exactly the kind of forward-thinking concept that makes Aspen the strong, innovative community that it is, creatively finding a way to use exciting space for the betterment (and access) of all in the community. To hear opposition is nothing less than surprising to me.

I email you as reassurance that there are many of us out here who know that the Power Plant facility is a great value and asset to our community, one that solidifies the progressive nature of our town and lays the groundwork for the changing needs of the local (and global) economy in the decades to come.

Thank you — I look forward to seeing this to completion and having a functional place to work, meet and gather in the years to come.
