Food for thought, my 8 month pregnant wife waited 40 minutes for a bus at Central Park the other day in sub zero temps. This topic is a tough one to comment on without really wanting to throw the laptop at the wall...just sayin'
Aww, it could be done for a quarter of that...just sayin'
Plow it under, build a bridge, divert the traffic, turn downtown back into a quiet little place to stroll, dine, and enjoy again...just kidding...let the games begin again.
When the treatment of the disease of addiction becomes priority number one, the war on drugs will no longer be waged and prisons will no longer be filled with non violent criminals.
Here's some irony for you Jerrylink text
I have to agree that our newspaper does not often challenge the status quo in a more open, honest, and let's say 'in your face' kind of way. On rare occasions when they do the direction of public sentiment is often stirred up and driven by the Two Scotts. I freely admit I scroll the news and look for the stories that have comments. I read the commentary and then decide whether to read what the paper has presented. The truth often comes out after the 'lies' ;-)
A friend of mine recently commented on social media that 20% of Soroco's school budget is from Peabody. Was that incorrect? With the growing grow industry spreading like a weed, pun intended, in Colorado, I wonder if we will soon be laughing all the way to the bank with the 'money tree' this industry is.
“It allows business owners as a group to be very responsive to things, rather than going through a whole process,” said Casey Earp, assistant to the city manager.
Great job on coming up with a plan to fund improvements that will have an immediate and noticeable affect on the downtown experience for both locals and visitors. This is a non-controversial solution to bring change to our ever growing downtown business district and asks the true stakeholders to take ownership of their own future development albeit in a small step towards fiscal responsibility. In the public eye this will only say to everyone, "We are going to do our part financially to improve our business district."
If this is approved this might just get public sentiment to sway more positively in the direction of controversial things like URAs and TIFs in the future. Kudos to the whoever brought this to the table.
Wait a minute! How in the heck did they get that smart growth award sign you see when coming into town then? Did some other government agency award them for their creative fiscal conservancy? This article was about staying the course with medical MJ. The motto in Routt is Coal, it's what keeps the lights on. When Peabody is gone and it appears it may happen someday soon, what will be the motto then? Pot, it's what brings the high ons?...Fish Tacos anyone?
A few weeks ago some residents with great intentions had 10 million dollars to pledge to build a field house on the grounds near Strawberry Park. How about a fund raiser in the area of a new police department headquarters rather than saddling the taxpayer? Just a thought but probably not a good one because this would require a phone call or two asking for donations from wealthy individuals. There might be one wanting their name on a plaque though!
