Sound Off for Dec. 24

What happened to town?

Downtown needed to be revitalized, but it seems like we’ve overdone it with saturating downtown with loft and retail edifices. We are doomed to chaos with increased congestion and traffic. What happened to the small-town atmosphere we were trying to preserve? Does City Council realize that many tourists comment on and lament the fact that Steamboat has been discovered by developers? It seems that we have in fact become Cooktown, USA.

Parking lot is pitiful

What’s the deal with the Meadows parking lot? Can anybody get a snowplow down there? It’s been several days since the big snow, and the freeze-and-thaw process has left the lot almost impassible. It’s dangerous – for people and cars.
