Lift One Talk

I love a good many things. I’d say a good chunk is shown on my social media for all others to enjoy or development a sense of enjoyment. Never forget your loves in order to keep you grounded. I love to cook, love to ski, love to travel, love to hike and explore. I love my friends, my family, JR, and my Chanel.
Beyond these loves of mine are channels of promoting love and being open-minded as well as displaying that way of thinking. Lift One Corridor is something I can’t speak enough on. What this plan could do for the city of Aspen is unobtainable. What this plan could do for the economy of Aspen is something you have to think about! Voting for this movement could mean bigger, better, and beneficial. I want to share with you some of the most common questions of this movement:

  1. The Cost:
  2. I know this is on several people’s minds. According to the Times, the plan is for the city to spend $4.36 million in total. If there is any cost running over, it will be covered by Gorsuch Haus and Lift One Lodge. The city won’t invest it’s money until the Lift has been installed and working. Furthermore, the investment is only to be used for certain parts of the plan. You can read more about that here. I know that amount sounds like quite a bit, but think big. The investment of $4.36 million will be a better asset for Aspen.

  3. Will It Go Back to City Council?
  4. According to the Times, no.

    Lift One Lodge has an existing approval from 2011. State law does not allow for more than 10 years in extensions of development rights. Because of the limited remaining time before that state deadline is reached, the only option remaining will be to build the existing approval if the vote fails. The 2011 approval does not have room for the lift to come down.
  5. Housing
  6. The development partners for the plan will provide housing for 67 employees. Over the next 30 years, there will be more money generated with the two lodges and will more than triple the amount of housing provided.

Digest these facts for a minute. If you are on the fence about the Lift One Corridor Plan, I encourage you to do your own research. The Aspen Times has been really good about keep the community informed, and follow me on Instagram or here for some updates!
