Don't trash Aspen with more buses
Citizens, alert! Are you aware the choices given at the Rubey Park open house on Monday was whether we want 18 buses lined up and parked along Durant Avenue or 23 buses lined up and parked along Durant Avenue or 28 buses lined up and parked along Durant Avenue? What kind of choice is that?
Are you aware that buses are allowed to sit and idle during the summer because Roaring Fork Transportation Authority wants the buses to be air-conditioned when passengers board? Can you fathom how trashy Wagner Park, Ajax and the center of Aspen will look when there are even 18 buses parked on both sides of the street along Wagner — idling?
I cannot think of any worse air pollution, noise pollution or visual pollution than to park all these buses on Durant Avenue obstructing our view of the mountains. What are they thinking? And I wonder how much the city paid someone to come up with this outrageous plan to park all these buses in the center of town.
These buses need to be parked at Buttermilk or the airport — not in the center of town causing horrific air, noise and visual pollution.
Please speak up to defeat this trashy proposal — we do not want 18, 23, or 28 buses parked in the center of town along Wagner Park! Someone is out of their mind.
