ASPEN REAL ESTATE — Pitkin County commissioners unanimously endorsed an alternative proposal Tuesday to trade federal land for the Sutey Ranch, even though the landowners who initially proposed the swap have already turned down the county’s proposal.The Wexners, in a letter, expressed a willingness to sit down with the commissioners — so far their representatives have worked with the county — but they also indicated they had no interest in the counteroffer that won commissioner approval yesterday….Commissioners voiced hope that Leslie and Abigail Wexner will reconsider the county proposal, or at least return to the table for further discussion.The county proposal is “an excellent starting point from our perspective,” said Commissioner Jack Hatfield. “Now I hope we can have a real negotiation.”
