Steve - Thanks for explaining the process tenants must follow in order to vote on the BID. I have one question: What is TBD?
"Some of the commission’s specific action items included looking into improving the biking and hiking trails at Rita Valentine Park" . . . There is nothing wrong with the trails at Rita Valentine Park. Hands off, please.
Playing nicely and taking turns works in lift lines; not so well in motor vehicle traffic. "Zipper merge" does seem counter-intuitive. The sand through an hour glass analogy doesn't quite fit in my mind. If vehicles are already in line cars flow more evenly through the bottleneck..
As a tenant in a downtown office building I already pay for trash collection and maintenance of the property, as well as $521+ per year for building taxes. BID has no appeal to me. If improvements are desirable on Yampa St., let the Yampa St. business owners and tenants and the city pay for them. Public safety is the city's responsibility.
BID was defeated by the voters last time. What has changed to make paying a higher property tax attractive? I'll still vote "no".
Thank you, Scott.
As I was making a left turn in my car onto Oak St, from the four-way stop at Third and Oak, I was startled by a cyclist flying through the intersection from Fish Creek Falls Road. I narrowly avoided hitting him. Continuing down Oak I noticed two cyclists blowing through the stop sign at Fifth and Oak. As a long-time member of RCR and an avid cyclist I was dismayed by the blatant disregard these riders showed for their own and others' safety. Whatever effort RCR can make to educate cyclists I support. I fear, however, that those cyclists who ignore or flaunt traffic rules are not paying attention to RCR's message either.
Just like Ski Time Square, where blight was created by the "developer".
$54 K could have been more effectively spent on the salary of a parking enforcement officer.
