ASPEN REAL ESTATE — Pitkin County has not felt the oil and gas development boom that has hit parts of western Colorado — particularly nearby Garfield County — but it’s looking at bolstering its regulation of those operations nonetheless.The county’s Planning and Zoning Commission has approved beefed-up land-use regulations related to oil and gas operations; they are scheduled for an initial review and public hearing before county commissioners on March 10.“We’re updating the code to have the most stringent regulations we can have,” said Cindy Houben, the county’s director of community development.
