Steamboat Springs In my opinion, Steamboat 700 has been more than fair in their concessions to the city. Unfortunately, our town has put off recommended (by staff) improvements for 8 to 10 years in some cases, waiting for a "sugar daddy" to come and bail them out.
There is no argument that the development of this project will create a need for expanded services, transportation, infrastructure, etc. But to ask the developer to pay for 100 percent of long recommended improvements is at best an exercise in overt socialism.
We must annex Steamboat 700. If we don't, we will see 700 (or is it 500) acres of luxury homes owned by 90-day residents, and we will still need new roads and schools and police stations. : We just won't have a way to pay for them.
