Colorado Mountain College will host an informational open house to share campus student housing concepts and solicit input on expanded academic programming and enhanced workforce training in Aspen. The second in this series of meetings this summer will occur at the CMC Aspen campus today, near the Aspen Business Center at 255 Sage Way, from 3 to 5 p.m. The meeting will include informal input activities and a facilitated site walk of the campus.

At its meeting in May, the CMC Board of Trustees unanimously approved a resolution reflecting the board’s commitment to major facility and programmatic improvements at the college’s Aspen campus. It has been nearly two decades since the board last invested in capital improvements at the Aspen campus. The trustees’ resolution follows years of discussing and prioritizing capital projects across the college’s multi-campus system. The resolution directs college leadership to advance the process of defining a capital improvement and financing plan for the campus, including additional opportunities for engagement, ideas and feedback from local businesses and community members. The community meetings being planned for this summer are part of that process.
