Letter: Time for the real work

Voters flexed their muscles and voted down Base2, but what exactly did this accomplish for the future of Aspen’s skyline? Base2 voted down, and now Retail2.0 going up. If you want to stop Main Street from turning into a shadowy canyon of big, boxy buildings, I’m afraid you will be disappointed.

Right now our code makes it easier to bulldoze and build new than to restore or renovate.

Roll up your sleeves, and change the code. It’s hard, slogging, boring, thankless work, and there is no free pizza. Roll up your sleeves on those muscular Citoyen arms, and change the code.
