All hail. Lift One Corridor plan can commence, and it is all thanks to you wonderful Aspen folk. You all have no idea how this will help our community! We are enamored to see the full effect of your voices coming soon! I am so proud to have been apart of the Lift One Corridor campaign. It’s always so wonderful to see the fruits of your labor.
Have you ever thought about the history of Aspen, and we how got our start? History is interesting because it humbles you and gives you the opportunity to learn from it. Some tidbits and thoughts about my city date back to the 1800s. The first set of people here were miners. Silver was actually a big deal way back when, until an act was passed (Sherman Silver Act) and this demonetized silver, destroying our economy within the community. This seemed to be it until someone found a huge chunk of silver, weighing in at 2,350 pounds. I can’t even wrap my head around that! Our rebirth happened after World War II, when Walter Paepcke started businesses that attracted people and created this empire, essentially, of an international ski resort.
Many citizens who voted against the Lift One Corridor believe that we should focus all our money and energy on the different needs to Aspen. When I read about what some of these people think we need, I don’t disagree! Yes, we need more lanes to help with traffic. I’m not against that. Do you ever think we won’t need something? Needs will never stop. Want’s won’t either. At what point are we allowed to get Aspen something a little extra? While the Lift One Corridor is a big interest, won’t it also totally benefit our city in big ways? I’m ready! Are you? Are you ready to embrace the goodness coming our way? Another thought, whether or not you like Gorsuch Haus, the new building will encourage tourists and community members alike. It will bring so much growth. One brutally honest author put it like this:
Now, picture yourself on World Cup weekend, making love to a Swedish downhill racer on a bearskin rug in front of a fireplace at the newly constructed Gorsuch Haus. There. That should change your perspective.
On a completely different note, I have a secret I can’t wait to share with my people here. Keep reading my weekly blog posts to stay in the know! Exciting things are happening.
