Fuel cost will drive the decision as to whether or not to open shop at TIC's campus Fred. You should know with the equipment you run. Imagine your PD department having to drive five miles each way every shift just to patrol. Logistically this site makes ZERO sense for the city to locate their new headquarters.


Peter Arnold 3 days, 4 hours ago on Parking consultant says Steamboat Springs doesn't have a 'big' downtown parking problem, but challenges remain

"Steamboat has been meter free since its first experiment with parking meters on Lincoln Avenue ended several decades ago with them being ripped up out of the ground and taken away."

I have to admit this made me chuckle.

With these type of people lurking around, imagine what it might lead one of them to do if the city stepped things up with more enforcement officers roaming the streets on Segways. I guess the results may make the light night talk show circuit again along with the occasional giraffe sighting...

To which freak do you refer? Kenny, Sonja, Scott, Tony, or Bart? Do you ever read what you write here? Your input is consistently petulant. Give us all a break Scott and try contacting your elected representatives in a more productive manner. Introduce yourself to them and state your concerns and maybe, just maybe, you will be given the information you so desire. As elected officials they respond to the needs and requests of the general public who approach them in a constructive way. Your manner of whining about everything the paper prints about how your elected officials govern is a waste of your time, my time, and I would bet a whole bunch of people reading this. However, many tell me they are quite entertained by your need to be first to comment and expound on the way things are and how they should be. I missed the meeting. I don't work downtown. I can't afford E3. I like Johnny's burger of the day deal. You should meet me sometime and read the sign behind the bar!

Harvey, Scott, you are both free to ride whenever you want and wherever you want. Businesses who want to charge money to bring people to those trails are being denied that right to protect the resource there for you both to enjoy without fear of being run over by a van load of visitors. Somebody call the waaaaaaaambulance though because somebody is treading on my rights!!! Rules are rules. Can you follow them?


Peter Arnold 2 weeks, 2 days ago on Our View: Howelsen has real and symbolic value

It is spelled Howelsen.

There is something unique and special about this town and its history. Its humble little hill, dedicated coaches, and supportive parents produce athletes that compete every four years with the best in the world. Any efforts to preserve that legacy and continue its growth are good in my book.

I look forward to the day when my wife and I will be able to walk our first child to Howelsen and be a part of that tradition of excellence that has inspired so many over the years. I would love to see a pedestrian walkway built at 7th over the river connecting downtown to the park. A bridge that for now is out of reach financially but someday would be amazing to see. Call it the The Olympic Heritage Walkway. Fill it with historical references to all the amazing athletes who have come from this place and celebrate its tradition. Let it be a bridge to showcase what this town is all about to all who come here.

Public opinion will likely get behind any plan that preserves, protects, and promotes this place. Anyone who sits in their dirty diaper crying about everything this city council is trying to do will not be heard over the roar of the crowds supporting their efforts to do right by this town and its tradition.
