I’ve actually read a few stories today (here and here) about a new development outside of Aspen, Colorado. This 72-acre project referred to as the Tree Farm includes a solar farm, micro-hydro facility, highly efficient homes and commercial space, and affordable housing, which is a big issue in the Aspen area (many of the workers at the various resorts can’t afford to live anywhere nearby and must commute). It has caused some controversy in that it is in unincorporated county and the neighboring community of Basalt feels that it should be annexed into their community before being built. The project is being billed as a TOD, but I am curious how efficient it will be in an area that is car-dominated. I hope the best for the project, though.
