A poorly written, over simplification of a complex problem, racism, ageism and name calling. Well done.
I hope city council does the right thing and refers this for a citizens vote. Colorado Springs citizens voted to buy part of this land over 100 years ago and we should have the same right to vote on it today.
Robert, she describes the Barr Trail portion of the exchange as "trail easements", while it's a transfer of ownership. She also conveniently forgets to mention that the city would get ownership of over a third of the Incline as part of that parcel. I consider this to be deliberate dishonesty in reporting, and is consistent with the way supporters have acted throughout this process - dishonestly.
To bad city officials keep trying to give what makes Colorado Springs so special away! Still can't understand why in the world our mayor and city council would trade away a beautiful open meadow that has been in our park system and that the people of Colorado Springs vote in over 100 years ago. The Broadmoor gets a priceless open meadow and we get some useless land! Oh yea back door deals, our city officials are in the back pocket of a billionaire, and appraised land that doesn't value the land correctly! Now the citizens have to sue the city! More then 70% of the citizens of Colorado Springs are aging a the "land swap"! What a great city government we have here. For the people lol. Merica at its best here.
The City and Trader Mayor John (pronounced - Traitor) are in a mad dash to complete the task of their masters. This matter has shown the "Strong Mayor" to be a puppet of Anschutz. Like a Banana Republic dictatorship, the entire city staff is controlled by the whims of Saddam Suthers.
