ASPEN REAL ESTATE — Community Development Department suggestions for loosening up recently implemented downtown development restrictions — including the 28-foot height limitation on new downtown projects and what amounts to a moratorium on third-floor free-market residences — failed to gain much traction at Monday’s Aspen City Council meeting. Still, the introduction of Ordinance 25, which lays out various code-amendment options for downtown heights and uses, passed unanimously, as most ordinances do upon first reading. More discussion, a narrowing of alternatives and a public hearing is expected at the council’s next regular meeting Nov. 26. The back-and-forth might carry over to December.
