Plans Underway for a new facility next to Pitkin County Health and Human Services
Pitkin County is moving forward with plans to construct a new ambulance facility and public input will be an important component of its design and construction. To kick off the process the the public is being invited to a tour of the existing facility with an opportunity to comment and make suggestions about design, parking, and the construction process.
The event is set for Wednesday, August 16th from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the current Ambulance Barn located at 401 Castle Creek Road, adjacent the Aspen Valley Hospital emergency entrance. The event is open to the public and refreshments will be served.
“We are looking forward to public involvement in this project,” said County Manager, Jon Peacock. “It won’t take long for those who take the tour to see how challenging the current ambulance facility is. Voters in 2014 approved our moving ahead with this project and we’re excited that the time has finally come,” Peacock said.
The new facility will be funded from a 0.501 mill levy passed by Pitkin County voters in 2014.
The Wednesday, August 16th event begins at 5:30 p.m. with a short presentation and refreshments, followed by a tour and an opportunity for public feedback.
