The Keystone Pipeline will bring many jobs full time of course while being built. (Years) Large number of related jobs in addition to the actual union construction jobs. (Years) The refineries which will process the crude are specialty refineries with "cracking" capabilities that closer refineries do not have. The refineries which will process the crude are the beginning of two of the countries most influential product pipelines that send products toward the Northeast of the country. (Colonial Pipeline and the Plantation Pipeline) So gasoline, diesel and jet fuel travel throughout these pipelines. Why wouldn't any sane person or President condone higher safety than rail transport, lower cost, best in class crude conversion and jobs for years. It is really not an environmental issue at all.
Just hope the president will recognize the actual benefits versus political left pressure. It will benefit huge number of folks who need jobs now. Not rhetoric.
While I do not know anything about URA or TIF I do know that adequate sidewalks in dangerous areas are a real need in Steamboat.
I would simply ask that the City Council not only view downtown sidewalks but consider the much needed sidewalk extension on Village Drive between Columbine Drive to Walton Creek Drive. No sidewalks and no lights in the condo area where tourists walk and drive is a very dangerous situation and an accident waiting to happen.
Jack, Ken, Martha, Kevin. It simply says a lot about a government and political party in the guise of fixing healthcare that they gut the working medical side. With distain of working together with the opposing political party to get real fixes step by step. Mid night passage and the then house leader's famous now words she likely eats every day "We Need to Pass This Bill to see what's in it!
A disgusting situation for which all of America is now paying. Not to mention the lying going on in the administration. Life should not be this way.
Folks on both sides need to find a way to work together. Great Jack you have the experience you site. Do not doubt others with different experiences.
For profit companies are what has made America GREAT!
While we don't live in Steamboat all year long we are certainly blessed to be able to have Father Scott and everyone else there at St Paul's. A great caring community. Thanks so much and happy 100 years!
Barbara & Steve Jones
