Letter (Aug. 29): Cars, not parking, is the problem
August 29, 2013
Cars, not parking, is the problem
I am totally against the re-processed idea of building a parking structure under Wagner Park. I'm not anti-growth or anti-change. I'm pro-park.
In my opinion, open spaces and parks in and around Aspen should be preserved and remain open. In Aspen, we should always strive to protect our fantastic natural environment.
The problem in the core of Aspen isn't lack of parking — it's the fact that there are too many cars in the core. Traffic and congestion? That's a big-city problem. I'll never understand why people insist on trying to bring their big-city problems to our little mountain paradise.
More green space, less concrete.
