Small Group Meetings Begin with Lifelong Aspenite Chapter

Yesterday, the City and County held the first of 11 small group meetings on the update to the Aspen Area Community Plan. This meeting focused on the "Planning for a Lifelong Aspenite" chapter.

Some highlights from the discussion include:
  • The plan should include regional solutions to health and human service gaps.
  • There needs to be more clarification on what services are provided by the government, and what is provided by the community at large.
  • The regulatory obstacles to personal agriculture, composting, greenhouses, etc should be eliminated.
  • Clearly define the terms used, including: "at-risk," "access," and "comprehensive."
If you have comments about the chapter, please post them here. The full comments can be found on-line at
