Recreational MJ not until Nov 2018??
Why would we want to send all that sales tax revenue to Manitou Springs??
What a mess. I don't think the Olympic Museum is a good idea and I am willing to wager it won't draw many visitors. I think this whole City of Chumps debacle should be scrapped and, in it's place, invite actual community dialogue. Personally, if we are stuck on building a museum, then we should start with a children's science museum, including the influence Tesla, who lived in COS and has an awesome history here. But that's just my opinion, among the other opinions of all the thousands of people who live in the area. Why has this project come in so fast? Routons' article highlights that all contingencies are planned for- when was the public ever even consulted? What a mess
Routon again proposes a STADIUM - this time to rebuild the aging AFA Falcon stadium downtown. What WONT the proponents of downtown revitalization think of next. Thankfully, as Routon says, this idea has no traction.
SW downtown's redevelopment, which has languished for 2 decades, has for many years had America the Beautiful Park and now will have the Olympic Museum as catalysts for redevelopment. And, as a URA. it is the recipient of City dollars. What is the reason that SW downtown is unable to fulfill its promise to provide infill housing and retail for COS?
