Open space for the future

It seems Roger Marolt would advocate local “affordable” housing at the expense of existing open space. Perhaps an egalitarian justification of its removal.

However noble that goal, existing open space, once removed, can never be replaced. We must be careful that we do not remove those attributes that have made Aspen a place of renowned beauty.  

Open space provides our security in the future beauty of Aspen.
