Aspen officials put off deciding to restrict development

Aspen City Council decided last night [Monday] to hold off for a while on changing the town’s land use code. The ordinance was drafted in response to a ballot measure calling for more oversight of development approvals. Council had come up with their own land use changes to address the same community concerns about out-of-control development. The majority of public comments Monday were against council’s ordinance or raised questions about it.

While it would restrict development that’s bigger than the code, critics say it’s more likely to accidentally allow larger buildings. After hemming and hawing, Council will continue to work on the proposed ordinance.
