brother svbor, chill !!
If we can't laugh, what are we?
It just kinda sounds like a "Buffet Song", it's 4:20 somewhere !!
Kevin, don't get suckered in. Stay away from this thread. They just want you to make a mistake.
Hey, It's 4:20 somewhere...
lewi, and don't forget about "linkage".
That has nothing to do with sales tax.
It was all about getting those evil developers to pitch-in. Sales tax?
Get in line everyone, get your handout.
lewi and company, handouts, entitlements, givaways, yes they are real, and not an illusion. Socialist garbage pure and simple.
You say the sales tax is driven by out of towners, what does it do to the local folks? It has more to do with money woes for those "locals" you pretend to want to help then what you know.
It's not just about the roof over your head. This is not a cheap place to live, no one said it was, and frankly, it's not for everyone.
If you want funding for housing, put it on the ballot, I dare you. It will lose because in the booth, the truth comes out.
Being a small business owner too, I understand the concerns about keeping good people due to housing, however, I believe the government should have nothing to do with this issue. Government will always make everyone pay for the few. This is wrong.
Well, well, well !
Problems with SST, and there goes the manager. Well, well, well.
Thanks Gov ! Very interesting. Put Ken Brenner on the job, maybe that way he will avoid his upcoming beating in the Senate race, where Al White will bury him.
Yes, one size does not fit all. if an employer chooses to provide "housing" as an incentive, fine. This city/county has no business in that business.
If the city/county chooses to do the same, it better be funded by that departments budget. There is a big difference between that idea and what the last Council wanted. Overturn the last Councils follies.
As to your questions about the Market Place, it is very very vibarant. The rest of the country is in the crapper, we here in the mountain areas are blessed. Everyone wants a piece of Colorado. (that should bring the house down). It's true.
housepoor, you got it.
If Steve Ivancie had been on the recent ballot, he would have been gone too!
As I've said in prior posts, Alan Lanning needs to go.
Grab this newsflash... Not everyone should own a home. Yes, I said it. Here it is again... Not everyone should own a home!
This is a large part of what happened with the sub-prime mess. The Feds allowed the "dream of home ownership" to get in the way of proper screening prior to lending monies, many times at 100%++ funding. We all will be dealing with the results of that garabge for a long time.
Government has no business being in the housing business!
No one will vote for additional taxes to pay for funding for "affordable housing". That means it must come out of the Cities treasure chest, and that is doing the funding by means of "back-door policies". Tabor is being violated, and the will of the people is being mocked. If you think funding (TAXES) should be raised to pay for sombody to buy a house, put it on the ballot. Let's have a vote. It would not have a snowballs chance in hell.
When I review the way in which the "Trojan House" deal was put together, it makes me ill.
We need builder (developer) incentives to build affordable rental units. Come on new Council, do not cave. Do what you were elected to do. Ivancie, you're the odd man out. Thank you voters!
