— Curtis Church confirmed Monday that he has moved from the area and resigned his seat on the Steamboat Springs Planning Commission. Church took a job as director of customer service and retention for a telecommunications firm in Toledo, Ohio.

"I've essentially left the valley for a lack of professional work in Steamboat Springs," he said.
