I agree that the our planning has nothing to do with the expansion of the internet and "location-neutral" business. What attracts those people to Steamboat is dependent on planning.
Efforts to protect community character, bike and pedestrian friendly policies, MTB trails on Emerald Mountain, community parks and protecting river corridors are huge assets that continue to be attractive to many people.
Let's continue to protect and promote these assets.
I don't know if the prices are too high, but the timing seems less than ideal. Spring lodging numbers are down (so far). Raise them over the summer when no one is paying attention.
Better yet, check out the pilot's election 2011 website. Everyone had to answer that question.
For complete information including maps check out the blm's website:
Comments may be made to the BLM and Western during the open house meetings, via the project e-mail address (TransWest_WYMail@blm.gov) or in writing to Bureau of Land Management, Attention Sharon Knowlton, Project Manager, TransWest Express Project, P.O.

This is great news for everyone.
I am also glad the SST has increased west side service to 10 minutes. I hope efforts to publicize this will take place, which should result in greater ridership.
What I'll be spending alot of time thinking about this winter....
-How well my studded bike tires work
-If the Core Trail will be plowed to Stockbridge before noon
-How nice the new Hwy 40 underpass is to ride
-When o' when will the bike bridge @ 13th Street be installed?
It's hard to understand how this moratorium serves the 65% of Routt County citizens who voted to approve Medical Marijuana
Geez Fred, If I wanted to be mean, I'd say you sounded like one of those "Community Alliance no growth" types. LOL.
Welcome to the club
While Community Alliance members may be working with Let's vote, our organization has not spent one penny nor used any of its resources to support Let's Vote.
The website good4steamboat has posted a blatant lie....
The leaders and the primary contributors to Let's Vote are “anti- growth”, even though all their names have not been publicly disclosed. The “Lets Vote” group is made up primarily of the anti growth faction of the Community Alliance. The Community Alliance did all the organizing, supplied most of their money, wrote the petition, created their messaging and advertising, and their letters to the paper; they have just allowed a couple of new faces to be their figureheads. The supporters, investors, and contributors of Good For Steamboat are all public information."
Its statements like this that put all developers in a poor light (yes there are some good ones).
Again, I swear that the Community Alliance is not involved with Let's Vote or any organized effort to influence the upcoming vote. Danny Mulcahy, Steamboat 700 and Good4steamboat should be ashamed of themselves for such dirty tactics.
