Scott, Since you would prefer not to be next to a commercial building and I would never buy a residence next to a commercial building, I guess the value of those two houses will go down if a grow operation goes in there. Also I think about 40% of Colorado residents are probably still anti pot and if I were selling property, I would hate to eliminate 40% of the potential buyers. Might reduce the value of the property. I realize it is impossible to win a debate with you but it is still entertaining to try.

A bar or a pool hall would probably be more trouble. I still say a grow operation will hurt property values. Once again, would you buy a house next door to a grow operation or for that matter any other commercial operation? They probably need the 1000 foot zone from the college because a large proportion of todays college students are mmj users and the would not be able to concentrate on their studies if the sweet smell of mmj made it into their space.

Hoot Owl trail is not a private street and it does not serve only Casey,s Pond. Myself and a lot of other people that live around here have found it a good route to Central Park plaza and Safeway which avoids part of the construction mess on hwy 40.

If this passes, the people who will pay for it is the people who shop and dine downtown. I do not foresee the business owners cutting their net profits. They will pass it on to the consumers just like all other taxes are passed on.

Why should a grow operation or any other commercial operation be allowed to move into a residential neighborhood? Buy a 35 acre plot on the edge of town or 1 mile from town. Then you have room to expand and you have not reduced the value of peoples houses who were there first and have probably been there for years. But wait, the county does not allow grow operations if I remember correctly? Oh well, I guess two peoples home values will go down. Somebody has to take one for the team if more taxes can be collected.

"government administrative staff has faced the sort of downsizing aka required productivity gains as is routine in the private sector." In what universe? I have seen no recent articles on layoffs of government administrators at any level.
