ASPEN, Colo. (AP) - Longtime tenants of a campground near Basalt are being asked to vacate as the owner moves toward a traditional, short-term RV park operation.

The Aspen Times reports (https://bit.ly/1KLw2Iz ) Aspen Skiing Co., in a letter addressed to “long-term campers” at the Aspen Basalt Campground, said it would restrict stays in 56 spaces to 21 days starting in May, with at least one week between visits.

Skico spokesman Jeff Hanle says the new rules will affect 25 families and individuals that rent year-round and 15 summer seasonal campers.

Tenants pay $750 monthly for the space, and some residents are concerned about finding similar affordable housing.

The campground is the only RV park in the valley, which boosts its potential for economic gain. Hanle says now is a good time for change.
