Aspen Public Radio (APR) hosted a town-hall-style discussion on development at Belly Up on March 25th that was moderated by Carolyn Sackariason and included heavy-hitters like Ann Mullins, Marcella Larsen, Michael Behrendt, and Michael Kinsely. One of our politically active partners, Bill Stirling, was also on the panel, in opposition to the proposed Referendum 1. According to APR, “The referendum would, if passed in the spring election, require a public vote for development proposals bigger or taller than what Aspen’s land-use code allows. The vote would also be triggered for exceptions to the affordable housing or parking requirements.”
Jay Wright, a broker associate at Stirling Peak Properties, is helping shape the next generation of Aspenites as a Big Buddy. The Buddy Program, which celebrated its 42nd anniversary this year, is a nonprofit mentoring organization serving youth from Aspen to Carbondale through one-on-one mentoring programs. Jay is part of the school-based mentoring program where he spends time with his buddy Aidan on a weekly basis as part of the school day.
How long have you been part of the buddy program?
I’ve been a big buddy for two years now.
Is there a screening or interview process to become a Buddy?
