Hilltop is a great example of where I see people walking on the road. I agree Tim that anywhere that a sidewalk can be put to keep people off the road should always be considered.
There is river access out through legacy but I am not sure if the trail will access it due to private land. I hope in some way that it is possible.
Your right Tim, there is not alot down there and our roads and sidewalks definately need to be kept maintained. The harsh winters create most of this damge I would think, not to mention the amount of underground springs ground water erosion and Colorado's expansive soil.
I would also like to see more effort to make repairs when needed instead of waiting untill the repair becomes a replacement. But I am always one for the expansion of our core trail.
With Stmbt becomeing much more populated throughout the years, the core trail through town has also seen a huge increase in its use. Being able to expand the core trail in either direction is something I am always for. Steamboat is know to be one of the most athletic towns in Colorado and pretty much Oympic Town USA. (Yah I said it). Expanding the core trail would be a huge bennefit to any athlete, runner, biker or to anyone who just wants to get out and go on a stroll.
Not to mention getting some of the bikers and walkers off the main highway which is apparently becomeing dangerous west of town past Sleepy Bear to Stmbt II.
The core trail has been molded into Steamboats fabrication since its inception and I hope that it continues to grow for everyones bennefit.
OHHH.....Here we go once again with the city council!! I agree with you 100% John.
This has become a tiresome norm.
It is quite apparent that they have their own agend and it doesnt involve truly what Stmbt is and was, only what they want it to become.
IMO,, they always seem to focusus around some sort of realeststate transaction more then the true community needs and wants and thats just unexceptable. Seems like a code of ethics violation to me..The core trail is a major staple and has made Stmbt unique from just about anywhere. I dont know a person in town that doesnt use it. The city should be using verything in their power to maintain, improve and expand it. (This goes for all of our public facillities and our open space as well. (Rita Valentine Park is another example that never should have come into discussion).
Dont get me wrong. I dont have anything against the responsible use of alcohol or mj but is it worth rolling the dice with your education???
The now 43 year old me says no way but the young 18-21 year old me said why not roll the dice. Put weather stripping around the door and get a fan. Hang beer out the window on a rope. I got lucky..Some people I knew did not.
We knew the rules and they havent changed. If your caught with possession at CMC, it is simply your fault and no one elses. You now get to go home and explain to your parents why you got kicked out of school
Rules have always been the same at CMC. NO ALCOHOL OR DRUGS ON CAMPUS PERIOD. (Age makes no difference) Ever since the drinking age was changed in the 80's to 21 it has been this way at every college or university I know of. The rules are there before you enroll so there is no excuse. As far as Medical goes, it is a very grey area when it come to posession and will take time for any college just like employers to accept it. Some colleges, universities and many employers will most likely never allow possession. As far as consumption you best take it off campus if you want to remain enrolled in college. I wouldnt expect CMC to change its policy except for maybe possesion for medical card holders only,, and thats a stretch.
Anyone can still go to waste mangement for free recycling drop off 5 days a week and most curb side is free now unless you buy their holding bins or roll out totes.
I think that western is the only one that still requires their customers to seperate cans, papers, plastics and bottles probably because they dont have a sorting machine.
But hey.. it is still a free service..
Thats a good point..
Its always full and I've noticed that people just dump there stuff on the outside for the wind and critters to get into. Basicaly littering..
Its becomeing a bit of a mess and I've noticed that the wind has taken some into Fish Creek..
Another bin needs to be dropped off..
If it's full take it backhome with you. Yah it sucks but its the right thing to do..
Steamboat has always had a bit of a parking problem except during down times. Every tourist town has this issue. Ever try to park on Pearl St. in Boulder during busy times? It is almost impossible. I Have always found a place to park during busy events like winter carnivale or New Years. Just have to walk a little bit.
Pd. parking is not the solution and will only cause more frustration amongst everyone.
Isnt it the employers responsibility to make sure that his or her employee is parking where they should be. The ski area is a good example. You better get your but up early if you want to park at the lower knolls lot otherwise your walking a bit.
As far as Pd parking in other towns, I have parked in Breckenridge 5 times in the last 2 months and never saw a parking meter. I parked down town on main st and on the side streets and there are no meters there.
I havent been TellurIde in a years so cant speak on that except to say it must have been recently and may have been because of the very large multi-day festivals like the Blue Grass Festival and others..
Mix alcohol with marijuana and we may get a Funky Skunky ~Town....
As of last week there were about 170 dispensaries that had applied for retail.. Only 6 would be ready for retail by the first of Jan. but that number has gone up a few.. One of the problems have been backed up applications by the state....The other is that many dispenseries have to remodel or open a seperate location in order to comply to state law..
Probably wont see to many open up until Feb~Mar..
...CHEERS!!! & MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!
Congratulations Bobby. :-)
You are a great asset for the community and thank you for your hard work and dedication to our town....Welcome aboard!!!
This is a great Christmas gift for the O.C.......
......MERRY CHRISTMAS OAK CREEK!!!!!!
