This morning, Mountain Rescue broke ground on its new headquarters on Highway 82 in Aspen. We are so proud to be the architects for such a worthwhile community asset.
“This is long overdue,” said Pitkin County Sheriff Joe DiSalvo, who gripped a gold-plated shovel and took part in the ground-breaking. As sheriff, DiSalvo officially is the head of the search-and-rescue group.
A 13,900-square-foot building on the new headquarters property — formerly the Aspen location for Planted Earth Home and Garden Center — will allow the 50-member volunteer organization to move out of a cramped cabin on Main Street. The project is expected to be finished next spring.
