Martha D Young 2 days, 19 hours ago on City of Steamboat Springs files lawsuit against developer, propery owner over neglect of historic barn

"RP Steamboat and RCS-Wildhorse Land have continued to deny they are responsible for maintaining the barn. The property owners say the barn maintenance conditions were struck from the development agreement by a previous City Council and are no longer valid." Do we all get to pick and choose which agreements from the past we honor? At the time the agreement was made between council and the developers/owners, why wasn't the agreement enforced? I like J's idea of a variance awarded allowing the barn to stay where it is and be stabilized. Moving it sounds dangerous to the integrity of the barn as well as costly.

An ad hominem attack has no place in this discussion site. Criticize "liberals" who want the govt. to pay for their "wants" as much as you like, but leave demeaning personal remarks out of this site, please. Since when is C.C. giving $750K for summer marketing to the Chamber an example of "liberals" wanting govt. support for their pleasure? Sounds more like a subsidy for private enterprise.

GID involves the city with its bonds. Opposition to GID does not equal opposition to development. Council allowing sweeping variance that defy the community development code is another matter entirely.I agree with Ken. 1125 Lincoln Ave. set a terrible precedent.

Why can't the developers simply install roads, utilities,etc. as part of the project and assume those costs? The costs would be passed on to the purchasers, without city involvement.
