Martha D Young 3 months, 2 weeks ago on Tax proposal would generate $190K for maintenance, marketing in downtown Steamboat Springs

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.


Martha D Young 3 months, 3 weeks ago on Tyler Goodman: The vision of a bike town

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.
