Re: “City Council's first challenge: How to make an immediate difference

Lofty goals be damned -- I'd be happy if someone, anyone,, would just fix the streets so you could drive on them.

Recreational MJ not until Nov 2018??

Why would we want to send all that sales tax revenue to Manitou Springs??

Think!

Re: “Olympic Museum and ... what else in southwest downtown?

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

Re: “Olympic Museum and ... what else in southwest downtown?

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?

Re: “City Council's first challenge: How to make an immediate difference

What is so depressing about CS is not so much the Right Winger nuts here all over... because we expect them to do as they do. But it is the supposed opposition to them that is even worse dealing with since they're such milquetoast Right Centrist Democrats.

'You could feel the instant anticipation, almost palpable, after the results came in April 4 for the 2017 Colorado Springs city election.'

Jesus. The instant boredom of people like Routon, Weiss (Indy publisher), and Skorman is that there is actually no 'palpable' change ahead in anything here locally. These folk are also MIC lovers, too. Sick.

Re: “City Council's first challenge: How to make an immediate difference

Nice wish list. All cost money.
Nothing about creating jobs and expanding revenues?

Re: “A message to city voters: Rise above the negativity

" - - -we could be looking at turnouts as low as 15 percent in District 4 and only in the 35 percent range for the other closely contested district races."

On the date Mr. Routon posted this article ( 6 days from the election) the overall rate of return of ballots (voter turnout) was at 18.47%.

What do you feel is the impact of negative advertising on local elections? A five minute grass roots survey. You can also check the current voter turnout for your city council district - Thank you.
