Crested Butte

  • This week author Paul Andersen talks about his new book “The Town That Said Hell, No!” Crested Butte Fights a Mine to Save its Soul. Plus, a commentary on affordable housing from Writers on the Range and a spring poem from Kate Redmond to mark the end of National Poetry Month.
  • Delta County might be adding to its fleet of vehicles by buying a semi-truck to haul dumpsters. Kate Redmond reports from the County Commissioner meeting. Plus, most Crested Butte residents want to fight climate change. But some people weren’t happy with the purchase of a new electric vehicle by local law enforcement. For our Rocky Mountain Community Radio collaboration on fossil fuel transitions, KBUT’s Christopher Biddle reports on what might have caused the backlash.

  • When the town of Crested Butte declared a housing emergency last summer, it opened the door to unique solutions. The first was to purchase a bed and breakfast to convert into housing for seasonal workers. Converting hotels to housing isn’t new, but it’s a growing trend in mountain communities. The next story in Rocky Mountain Community Radio’s reporting collaboration on affordable housing, funded by the Solutions Journalism Network is from reporter Stephanie Maltarich.
