Topping the news this morning, one project looks worthy of a medal while the other needs more training.
The Steamboat Springs Planning Commission reviewed two large-scale development projects Thursday night. The commission unanimously supported The Olympian, a proposed 41,100-square-foot commercial and residential building planned for the northwest corner of Fifth and Yampa streets. The planning commission unanimously did not support Steamboat Crossings North, a 10-building project on the northwest corner of U.S. Highway 40 and Pine Grove Road.
Commission members praised virtually all aspects of The Olympian, including its predominant use of brick and stone, creative architecture, varied rooflines, inner courtyard, and on-site affordable housing units.
A 43-year-old Oak Creek woman was treated and released from the hospital Wednesday morning after suffering minor injuries in a rollover accident on west U.S. Highway 40.
Steamboat Springs police Capt. Joel Rae said Kelley Wiley sustained a minor leg injury when the 1995 black Chevrolet Blazer in which she was a passenger rolled over a retaining wall and onto its hood in the 3100 block of Lincoln Avenue.
The driver of the car, 20-year-old William Wiley, and passenger Scott Wiley, 44, of Oak Creek, were not injured, Rae said.
In Spanish, "amistad" means friendship. For the Mexican Consulate in Denver, amistad defines how Steamboat Springs city officials and community leaders have embraced the area's growing population of Mexican immigrants.
That relationship has earned the city the Amistad Award from the Mexican Consulate. Several city and community officials will travel to Denver on Monday to accept the award from Juan Marcos Gutierrez-Gonzalez, the consulate general of Mexico.
On Monday I will be heading to Denver to attend the awards ceremony so be sure to pick up a copy of Tuesday's Today.
For many Routt County families, choosing the perfect Christmas tree is as much about the experience as it is about the look of the tree.
As it does every holiday season, the U.S. Forest Service is offering tree permits for anyone who wants to venture out into National Forest land and cut their own tree.
The permits are available at the Medicine Bow-Routt National Forest office at 925 Weiss Drive across from the Holiday Inn on U.S. Highway 40.
The Steamboat Sailors football teams heads to Pueblo County for Saturday's playoff game.
Steamboat has held seven of its last nine opponents to single digits, including last weekend's shutout of Fort Lupton. Pueblo County has held six opponents to single digits this season, including two shutouts.
The winner of the game will move on to the Class 3A semifinals to play either Summit or Englewood. Pick up a copy of the Steamboat Pilot on Sunday or visit steamboatpilot.com to see how the Sailors faired.
