"Marijuana" is not the problem, far from it. How about not trying to cheap down one of the most visible city services in our sales tax based economy which happens to be utilized and relied on by locals and tourists alike. Yet somehow, a "penny wise pound foolish" approach has been taken all because transit is viewed as an expense line item that needs to be trimmed. It's time that local citizens and businesses who are being adversly impacted by these short sighted decisions speak up to the obvious fact that this is a vital service to our local economy that can not continue to be short changed (free service or not). And with that in mind if city management can not commit the funding then start charging a nominal fee to ride what could and should be a great asset not a liability to our community.
Try to put things in proper perspective sheeple, the NFL especially and all other over paid professional athletes are nothing more than the modern day Gladiators providing the "Bread and Circus" distraction that keeps our citizens complicit in the blind and numbing support of the BIG BROTHER/BIG BUSINESS heist of our country. The sooner the NFL is boycotted the better for all of us. GO BILLS!
"...decision affecting the future viability of our historic downtown commercial district and the entire business community with it". Such drama, sounds frighteningly familiar to some of the doom and gloom comments made regarding the subsidized airline program a few years back. Be afraid people be very afraid. Happy Halloween!
The most rational and balanced response I have ever read from Mr. Hartless, is there a solar eclipse happening or maybe a slight shift of the polar axis? Point well taken regarding "doing the most good for the most people..." my question is at what cost and is this a short sighted exchange with untold consequences for future generations?
Wonderful! Too many citizens these day's have adopted "truthiness" for facts. Thanks again for the clarification. The onslaught should begin in 3,2,1...
Appears to me that all the recent attention to Yampa St. may have an alternative motivation of enticing Greencourt to finally do something with the demolished trailer park sitting at the south end of the street. The city is licking their chops over tha additional tax revenue that development would generate and why not spend other people's money much the same as developers do to get them in the game. Unfortunately as many have addressed here another park or mini ice rink is not what is needed but it sure is sexy.
If common sense is the issue why didn't the developer/owner forsee the parking problem and invest the proper amount of land and money to create dedicated parking for their 200 employees? As it is there is already insufficient parking for residents and guests and now they want to blame the city, go figure. Always seems to be governments fault these days except when it comes to fighting our wars, providing disaster relief keeping our air, water and food clean, infrastructure safe and secure... Oh yea and stay away from my Medicare too. When compromise is a dirty word in politics just what do you expect from our government?
Those same tacks have been out causing flats on River Road, Sydney Peak and Catamount area all summer. It is definitely a local and a reward of some sort may help bring them to the surface.
Apologies for the outdated misinformation!
