I respectfully disagree but there may be a simple solution as to whom is more accurate. Require a dedicated parking spot for every tenant who has a car because every tenant who has a car obviously needs a parking space. Then add adequate handicapped parking and guest parking spaces.
When this plan is approved, I am very concerned that the will be a totally inadequate amount of Parking space just as at Casey's Pond and almost every other project ever built in SBoat. Don't think for a moment that by not providing generously adequate parking, people will be forced to use alternate transportation. Yes, some will use buses and a very few will use bikes but almost all will own and use their individual car and inadequate parking space will not force them to use buses. The only thing inadequate parking areas do is save the developer money. Remember these Condo units will have many, many guests plus many units will be filled by multiple single persons, who all will own a car. As a minimum , there should be two parking spaces for each bedroom plus adequate spaces for guests. Anything less will be a true nightmare for all concerned.
Michael, Thank you for your past service and welcome Natalie. Michael quietly helped many who needed assistance.
Does it strike anyone else that asking for a blight designation for an area comprised of $600,000 (Workman) to muti-million properties is not only unethical but just plain wrong ? The City does own the sidewalks but has required construction and maintenance to be done by the adjacent property owner. As a past property owner of both Oak St and Lincoln properties, we had to do this. So why hasn't the City enforced its requirement equally and why doesn't it enforce it now so taxpayers aren't stuck with increasing a property's value ? As you enjoy walking between 5th (One Fine Day) and 4th ( St Farm) on Oak St, ask yourself why such a nice sidewalk exists when it doesn't along all of Oak St. or Yampa St. And yes, 100% was paid by the property owners.
Again, an extensive vending machine operation from fruit, sandwiches, candies and coffee would, in my opinion, provide passenger needs. And no expensive payroll/benefits expense. And, more importantly, no LOSS. Passengers can obtain meals etc. at DIA upon arrival.
Is there a stop loss built into this plan ? If losses exceed a certain amount, such as $70,000, will operations cease ? Or continue to unlimited losses ? What is the contigency plan or plans ?
No, Scott W, Meeks's over crowding statement wasn't a lie. His comment of taking a cooling off period is a sensible suggestion regardless of the urgency or lack of urgency, depending totally on one's opinion, and it does make sense to let emotions calm so a new plan can be created. Your comments have been appreciated but, if one or more turned out to be in error, it or they would not have been a lie, would they ? A difference of opinion is not a lie and we, as reasonable adults, should maintain a level of civility. Your continued involvement in a new plan will be appreciated and thank you for your past efforts.
It's too late now to try an extensive selection of coin operated vending machines but this idea might be put in a file as the No.1 back-up plan. No payroll expenses. Passengers do not wait long before their flights arrive or depart so the machines can offer most desired items. And a guaranteed no $$$ loss operation as the vendor takes all risk and profits - or the profits could be split. Seems better than a possible $70,000 + loss.
Steph and Marcia, As I understand it, there is a substantial amount of money in the bond for Pre-K because new classrooms would be built for this program even though Pre-K is not part of K through 12 and, yet, YVHS is so would it make more sense to allocate the Pre-K money to YVHS ? Just a thought.
Along with many others, I believe we have an excellent group of teachers and fully support their efforts to constantly improve their abilities. I believe these abilities should be unhindered. Special interests, whether unions or any others, should and must have no part in pushing their programs onto the public via the School Board. The School Board must be impartial. It must be open to receiving suggestions, proposals, and recommendations and must balance these with the absolute need to do what is best for our students and the public who finances their operations.
