Pitkin County is considering building an enclosed Drop and Swap facility at the landfill. An outdoor Drop and Swap has been a fixture at the landfill for many years. It's a place where residents drop off furniture, fixtures, sports equipment, and construction materials, among many other things. The only trouble is, the current outdoor Drop and Swap is exposed to the elements and more often than not swap items are ruined by the rain, snow, and wind. An enclosed facility would allow the Solid Waste Center/Landfill to accept more reusable items including upholstered furniture, electronics and appliances, etc. These items could be recycled and reused by another family instead of ending up in the landfill. As the saying goes "One man's trash is another man's treasure."
Would you mind taking a couple of minutes to give us your feedback on this short survey? Your Board of County Commissioners would appreciate it!

Because Off HIghway Vehicles are increasingly being used to access the backcountry via County roads Pitkin County is seeking public input to help formulate an OHV Management Plan. This plan would designate which roads in Pitkin County (if any) would be open to OHV use and create a strategy for management and enforcement.
We hope you will take a few minutes to comment on Pitkin Connect.

If you have been following the airport improvements Environmental Assessment process, you will know that for over a year-an-a-half we have been studying the possible environmental impacts of a proposed new airport terminal and runway shift and widening.
We know our community is most concerned about air quality, noise, climate, water resources, socioeconomic and visual resources. Please review our findings and give us your feedback.
We look forward to hearing from you!

If you have not already 'rated' the four different new airport terminal concepts we are currently circulating to the public we hope you will take a few minutes to do so BEFORE November 20th. We will use the feedback we gather here with feedback we've collected at in-person meetings and open houses to narrow terminal concepts (single story, split level, nested, and two story) down to two that will be closely studied in the ongoing Airport Environmental Assessment now underway. Your participation in this process is vital!
Stay tuned for announcements from Pitkin County Airport in the coming months about events at the airport when we take you on a tour of the runway and proposed terminal site so you can get an even better feel for a terminal concept that would best suit our community.
Thank you very much for your interest in YOUR airport!

We like you to join us for a lunch tour (food all along the way) on Wednesday, June 3rd beginning at noon on the Courthouse steps. We'd also very much appreciate it if you would take a moment to give us your feedback on the project on Pitkin County Connect.
