Letter: ‘Don’t try to re-do Aspen’
November 17, 2014
The area near the river in Basalt could be special. It could have a kayak park, a brew pub and cheap lodging like a hostel. Don't try to redo aspen. Think a funky personality (more like Crested Butte) and lots of messy vitality. Since Willits will get the bulk of the shoppers, Old Town needs to have something different. A riverside park for children to play, dogs to walk and concerts to be held. Don't think "build" — think "create." This area can never be reclaimed once developed.
