What about 700. Too much development. Hwy 40 can't accommodate all that growth and traffic.
Stop the growth, stop the building. Oh, the price of housing is going up. City you have to come to the rescue. Come on think. People are going to continue to come here and we have not had a subdivision since Silver Spur and West End Village. It's economics. Few units, higher prices.
the planning commision people approve anything that comes across their desks.
just check out the montrosities downtown.
the original 'rules" were that nothing should be higher than 3 stories.9the courthouse being the standard. but then the argument was 'what constitues a story"
thansk planning commision for having no forestight!!!!!!
but then why are they called Planning when they don't actually plan for anything, they just aprove and build.
People like to visit here for it's small town atmosphere-that is slowly going away-same thing happened to Ouray. Growth and development isn't always a good thing
so far only ONE vote for YES.. does this tell us anything?
Expanding the UGB would allow housing on part of Emerald off 20-mile road past Fairview. It would also guarantee that all of those trails on Emerald, behind Fairview, which we all use and which are NOT city owned, but are owned by Lymon Orton who allows the public to use this land, would continue to be open to public use. Otherwise, that area will become a gaited community and none of us regular folks will have access. Please educate yourselves about Orton's proposal before passing judgement on expanding the UGB.
What is a "gaited" community? I guess that means you have walk at a certain "gait" to enter....
pitidog, the information in the story on the proposal was pretty complete and people are responding. We do not need 300-400 additional home sites. I we have to choose between 34 large homes and 375 small ones added to that side of town, I would prefer the large ones.
BTW, if the property is the only access to the public property in question, he will not be able to close it. Public access takes place accross private land all the time.
So far, this idea is even less popular than the rec center.
.the part of the Orton property directly adjacent to 20 mile road is appropriate for high density housingapartment building
Almost the entire valley has been developed with the traffic congestion of a small city. Enough already!! When Steamboat is a coming, here and gone - there will be at least one mountain to rest upon!
