'Clicker Sessions' Set for AACP
The Aspen Area Community Plan (AACP) Update is drawing to a close, and the City of Aspen and Pitkin County are asking the community to give their input again as adoption of the plan nears completion.

The AACP is a document of critical importance to both the City and the County.  It is incorporated in the land use codes by reference and is used to set annual budgeting and work program priorities. 

“We are inviting the public to a series of upcoming Large Group Meetings November 15, 16 and 17 at the Wheeler Opera House,” said Jessica Garrow, long-range planner with the City of Aspen. “These sessions will include keypad clicker questions, an opportunity to ask questions about the plan and an informational open house. Prizes, including ARC passes and golf passes, will be awarded to some lucky participants.”

Sessions will be:
Monday, November 15: 5:15 - 6:15 p.m.
Tuesday, November 16: 12noon – 1 p.m.
Wednesday, November 17: 5:15 - 6:15 p.m.

City Council, the Board of County Commissioners and the City and County Planning & Zoning Commissions will use the feedback received in the Small Group Meetings and the Large Group Meetings to make changes and refinements to the plan.

Following the Large Group Meetings, the joint City and County Planning and Zoning Commissions, the City Council and the Board of County Commissioners will hold traditional public hearings, providing another opportunity for public feedback.
