Tuesday May 5th is the final day to vote in the Aspen City Elections. This is the first time the city has done an mail-in ballot system. Outside of voting for the mayor and city council candidates, Aspenites will also consider a significant referenenum vote on development. The question is: Should the public - instead of city council- be the ones to decide about exceptions to development rules? The Aspen Daily Times has come out in favor of Referendum 1. KDNK's January Jones spoke with Managing Editor Curtis Wackerle about the two campaigns to sway votes for the referendum.
On Saturday May 2 Carbondale is planting it's first edible landscape at the Nature Park around the solar array. Carbondale Arborist David Coon said volunteers are needed. He explained to KDNK's January Jones how the project helps meet Carbondale's sustainability goals.
