Welcome to a Valley Roundup. I’m Carolyn Sackariason.
It was a record holiday season for the resort in nearly every sector. And the average daily lodge room rate climbed to almost $800.
And while Aspen has taken measures to slow growth, Glenwood Springs is looking to speed it up by combining the positions of community development director and economic development director.
And in the midvalley, it seems there is no stopping the development train.
Finally, some community members are shaking their heads on a recent decision by a judge to sentence a repeat offender to probation.
Joining me this week are Randy Essex, editor and publisher of the Glenwood Post Independent, Madeleine Osberger, contributing editor for the Aspen Daily News, and Roger Marolt and Andy Stone, both columnists for the Aspen Times.
Valley Roundup is a production of Aspen Public Radio news.
