We had one. From what I understand they couldnt afford rent in central park and closed down. There is a small one in Craig.
Something like a Panera would probably do quite well here with Stmbts demographics although the building may be to big..
When natural gocers was put here I always thought that it should have been a whole foods instead. It is a much better style store for a town like this. I would rather see that then any other box chain store and the building is to small for most others.
Maybe it should stay vacant for a while so a real plan can be put into place that fits the demographics of Stmbt.
Just another park to give up to tripple crown for most of the summer..(LOL)
But realisticly a parking structure makes great sense. We have had a parking issue forever downtown and talk about metered parking is something I hope we avoid. A 2-3 level parking garage would alleviate some of the stress and it would be centraly located.
I coudnt agree with you more Robyn. This gives the seller a chance to perform a long term test at a much less cost providing a more accurate reading. Short term tests are a base average usually performed by a home inspector for the buyer of a home. Both tests need to be done in a closed house environment (all HVAC to home should be turned off, all windows closed, no fans on and unit should be placed in an undisturbed area at the lowest habital spot in home).
A long term test is a must if home will be somewhat distubed.
Beware of any company that performs radon testing along with mitigation.
It is a conflict of interest and could cost you uneccessary $.$$$
If mitigation is needed, the average cost is usualy anywhere from $800~$2000
Please contact me if interested in a short radon test. This is a 3 day test and cost is $150
Sam Bush is right up there. :-)
The free concert series has been one of the best functions in Stmbt since it was conceived and the locals here have obviously shown there support for many many years.
I personaly liked the days that lincoln was shut down and the shows were on the court house lawn. Bring a blanket and some refreshments. Those were the days with bands like Spin Doctor, Bele' Fleck, etc..
If I had to gripe about one thing with the series now is the that we are not bringing in enough well known performers like we used to except for the last show of the season. Sure the music is still good with Sam Bush and the Whailers being an almost every year occurance with the bud light series on the mountain but I dont know most of these bands that are brought in for our summer line up except for the fact that they may have played here once before. (more of a bar band).. Its still music for the soul and a great time to get out amongst friends and family and enjoy some local good times. :-):-):-)
Sorry Carpenters but it wouldnt make sense for so many reasons to create a k9 devision because of Stmbts dog population. As cute as your poem is a k9 unit would rarely get used here and would again be an expensive cost. The pooche alone would run about $40,000 and officers would have to go through expensive training.
As far as I can remember we have always had officers on horses during certain events but its something we dont see as much anymore. Maybe due to Stmbts rapid population growth.
I would like to see some officers walking the beat down town interacting with the public every day like an ambassador on the mountain. I think it would be well perceived by the public.
Kinda like the good old days.. (and not on a segway)
What I want to know is how does this make the first online article at 8AM. (even in poetry form)
Cant wait to check back later to read more of the funnies :-)
With the backward aproach to everything Stmbt these days, I am not suprised the city has allowed this to continue...Total junk show.. This realy needs to stop or be fixed. Either put another bin there, put one or two by city market or remove them and make people drive to WM or do curbside.. The mess of trash left there is unacceptable for Steamboat or anywhere.
I like what you said Erich "not very boaty" :~)
