Richard Gaines: Rules restrictive

Richard Gaines

— I am a resident of Florida and have been a vacation homeowner in Steamboat Springs since 1989.

Over the years, I have visited Steamboat routinely and honestly consider Steamboat my home.

I have used management companies to maintain my home and to offer it to vacationers during the periods I am not there. I feel that I am both doing a service (providing a beautiful place for visitors) and also offsetting the increasing costs to me.

The current city regulations concern me, in that it looks like these rules might make it unreasonably restrictive for me to continue my current situation.
