ASPEN REAL ESTATE – The Pitkin County commissioners unanimously agreed Tuesday to authorize their terms for a midvalley land swap originally proposed to them by billionaire landowner Leslie Wexner. But the vote had been rendered largely symbolic a day earlier, when the owners pre-emptively rejected the county’s proposal.Last January, representatives for Wexner’s estate proposed to trade his 520-acre Sutey Ranch, in Garfield County, for 1,268 acres of federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) property in Pitkin County, which lies next to his estate, known as “Two Shoes.” Both the Sutey Ranch and the BLM land would be protected by conservation easements which would prohibit future development.
