ASPEN REAL ESTATE — After 18 months of work, 42 votes among six committees, tens of thousand dollars and more than 100 meetings, the citizen task force charged with plotting the future of the city’s historic preservation program can’t come to a consensus — or so it appears.The Aspen Historic Preservation Task Force held two public input sessions Thursday in an effort to glean information from residents before making recommendations to the City Council later this month.But the task force doesn’t plan to give a recommendation on how to deal with Ordinance 48, which was the impetus for the group to convene. The ordinance, passed in late 2007, was a temporary fix to Ordinance 30, which prevented the demolition or alteration of any building more than 30 years old without a governmental review to determine its historic significance.
