Thank you for writing about this topic.
I agree that Howelsen HIll should be utilized in the best ways possible.
In addition to what you suggest, I would add that a more complete cost and benefit analysis be done. And within that an assessment of the natural carrying capacity of the area be actioned.
Over the past several years we have witnessed clear indications that the land has limits in how it is used.
When we look more carefully at how we value certain uses, and give greater consideration to what the area can 'handle', better decisions can be made about the future of this gem in the heart of our community.
Good job Patti!
I appreciate the upsides to the Safe Routes to School Program.
Collaboration between School Districts, parents, and municipalities lead to opporutnites to keep cars off the roads, kids getting more activity, and the now proven cognitive benefits of this kind of pre school day activity.
It is this very type of collaboration which is at the heard of building greater well being in any community.
Well done Joe. Public service, or any service, done with integrity is a benefit to all involved.
All the peer-reviewed science points to what you are highlighting. We may not know what exactly the changes will be, or when they will happen, but it is almost wholly indisputable that the changes will be significant, even in a best case scenario.
It seems like common sense for our city and region to look closely and strategically at how these changes will impact life in this part of the world, and indeed beyond.
Congrats Eliza and go enjoy yourself and ski your heart out!
Big congratulations Justin! Now go rip it up.
Despite the qualities of those who have kindly volunteered to be on the trails committee, It is concerning that there are no women in the running. Orgs, boards etc are all proven to be more effective with women involved, if not acting in a leadership role.
Thanks for this take.
I am reminded of the mid 1990's when local voters overwhelming denied a $40M-ish school bond effort that would have built a new high school, and more. After the 'defeat' a group came together to more directly address the intentions behind the original initiative, and a lower cost and seemingly effective one was drawn up in its stead. This one passed.
