Should Charlottesville be like Austin or Aspen?

(Gary) Henry, a Board member of the Charlottesville Business Innovation Council, is continuing his efforts to call attention to a fork in the road that he sees approaching for the area’s future; one branch leading to an economically and culturally diverse city with a healthy middle class (Austin), the other leading to a ritzy retirement and tourism community where only the wealthy can afford to live (Aspen).

My vote is for Austin. Read more and watch his presentation at Charlottesville Tomorrow.

    If those are my only two choices, it’d have to be Austin. The diversity that would bring would buoy an already strong infrastructure (at least, from the outside looking in it appears strong). I wouldn’t want to have to rely on a seasonal industry …
