Well said, Elaine. Thank you.
Eliminating 33 parking spaces on Yampa St. and spending $54K on a parking study? As others have said, we have the means to address this "problem" without eliminating parking spaces and spending $54K.
I attended the Parks and Rec Commission meeting were the poorly conceived plan for developing RV Park was presented; also the meeting where Joel Rae described plans to build a police station on a portion of RV Park. At those two meetings the "noise" opposing those developments was made by more than a "very few". While there is no ordinance preventing the development of RV Park, the public continues to insist that it remain as it is.
Once again the citizens of Steamboat Springs are being asked how they would like to see an existing park (Howelsen Hill) changed, in spite of budgetary issues caused by maintaining the park at its current level of functioning. This hoopla is reminiscent of the renewed palaver about adding amenities to Rita Valentine Park. City Council would do well by focusing on maintaining existing parks and infrastructure. What is behind these overly ambitious proposals being brought to the public?
Thanks, DJ and Hank. I fully share your opinion. Frisbee golf is incompatible with open space. Can you imagine walking, biking or skiing in the park and having a Frisbee zing by your head? I don't think the wildlife would appreciate it either.
Target, Costco, Home Depot, Office Max - my wishful thinking.
When exactly will the sidewalks on Yampa St. be built? Dodging car traffic on Yampa St. both as a pedestrian and cyclist gives me pause to wonder why a "pocket park" takes precedence over human safety. Since when are public sidewalks the responsibility of the property owner and not the city, as on Oak St.? Your question about taxation deserves a reply.
Pat: What do you think of the committee composition? It seems biased toward business as usual, and not trails.
If I can believe what I read, Hinsvark is a rerun of Roberts. Land swap negotiations unknown to Council? Astounding.
Is there land available next to the S.O. and jail where a P.D. could be built? I like that idea. Thanks for describing the chief's suite. Amazing.
