Martha D Young 1 week, 4 days ago on Our View: Downtown Steamboat’s moment is here

"We think the fate of that plan could determine whether we remain competitive with other mountain resort towns, or fall behind." My favorite lie - oops I meant line - from this editorial. Who knew we were competing?


Martha D Young 3 months, 1 week ago on Steamboat City Council to decide whether old house on Yampa Street should be razed to make way for new park

I think the majority vote supported the trails option, and not the Yampa Street revitalization. Council, in its infinite wisdom decided to include the Yampa Street project, dividing the money between trails and Yampa St. Did you read what our City Manager had to say about sidewalk improvements, the BID and the URA? Sounds like popular will doesn't matter here.


Martha D Young 3 months, 2 weeks ago on Lawrence C. Glueck: Vote ‘no’ on BID

Thank you, Larry. I, too, am an owner of a very small business for which I lease space in the downtown area. In my building the landlord passes property taxes directly to his tenants. If tenants in the downtown area do not vote because of the difficulty obtaining ballots, then the election results will not be an accurate reflection of voter sentiment. If the BID passes we will have taxation without representation.


Martha D Young 3 months, 3 weeks ago on Founder keeps hope alive for the 4 Yellow Foundation

Good luck, Dave. The Foundation has taken a hit, but is still is dedicated to its primary goal: fight cancer in whatever form it appears.
