PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT
Community Meet and Greet for Construction Kick-Off for New City Offices Project
February 1, 2019 10am-12pm at 425 Rio Grande Place
Aspen, Colorado – January 29, 2018 – The City of Aspen and its partners in the new City offices building project will be hosting a meet and greet with the community on Friday, February 1 from 10am – 12pm at 425 Rio Grande Place. Representatives from City of Aspen, Concept One Group, Charles Cunniffe Architects, Shaw Construction, and PR Studio will be available to answer questions from the public. Construction will begin February 4 with utilities work and deconstruction activities.
The City of Aspen’s new facilities will reduce taxpayers’ expenses by building on land the City owns as opposed to leasing free-market commercial space, consolidate services in downtown Aspen, and improve existing facilities for better public service, improved business processes, and to address accessibility issues. In November 2018, 57% of Aspen electors voted to locate new City offices at Rio Grande Place and Galena Plaza.
