Valley Roundup - January 24th, 2014

Good afternoon and welcome to Valley Roundup, a review of the week’s top news stories in Aspen and beyond.

We are joined today by Carolyn Sackariason, Editor of the Aspen Daily News, Andy Stone, a columnist fro and former editor of the Aspen Times and Michael Miracle, Editor of Aspen Sojourner magazine.

The X Games are upon us and the word is that ESPN will continue them in Aspen for another five years.  The games bring a younger crowd to town.  Today we consider what Aspen looks like to a 20-something visitor.

Basalt is organizing a crowd-sourcing urban planning process.  The town wants residents to look ahead and imagine a future town.

Aspen will soon have an empty art museum to repurpose and the ideas for the space are rolling in.  The city wants a public service that will engage the community.

And on the Download with Rob St. Mary - Netflix could be ready to press subscribers into the battle over net neutrality.
