[ARCHIVED] City Seeks Input on Aspen’s Summer Vitality Plans


City Seeks Input on Aspen’s Summer Vitality Plans
Community can take survey and leave comments on Aspen Community Voice

Aspen, Colo. – March 3, 2021 – The City of Aspen is seeking community input through the Aspen Community Voice website on how to activate downtown to create summer vitality. Public input will help inform recommendations brought to City Council on March 22, 2021.

This effort is similar to the community engagement last spring, which contributed to the activation of downtown sidewalks and parking spaces for safe, extended downtown vitality. These efforts included temporary modifications to processes as the City sought to mitigate the ongoing impacts of COVID-19, invigorate economic recovery, and create more diversity downtown for businesses, residents, and visitors.

Currently, the City is evaluating lessons learned in 2020 to develop the activation plan for summer 2021.

“Last year, everything related to COVID-19 was unknown and new, and we asked for input to help businesses recover the lost capacity inside by extending commercial activities outside, into the public right-of-way,” said Pete Rice, engineering division manager. “This year, we’re building off lessons learned, but we still need to hear from our community about what worked or didn’t.”

The community is encouraged to learn more about the project and participate in the community survey at The community survey is open for submissions until 5 p.m. on March 12 to expedite the planning process. On the project webpage, users can also submit comments, ask questions, see a project timeline, and learn more about the initiative.
