The existing summit house is a real structural mess. With new building materials and better methods the new building should be a landmark. The newly renovated Garden of the Gods Visitor Center is an example of a local landmark.
The Mayor want's to stifle the only business that is growing in the Springs? It's legal to grow Marijuana in my basement as long at the electrical system is safe.
The Cursor Cowboy aka David Hughes has been advocating making voting easier and accessible for the mobile generation. Why would the GOP want to give up their hold on power in El Paso County to the mobile generation? Keep calm and pass the Geritol.
Maybe the new blood on the Council will be able to get a couple of initiatives passed before the Old Guard shuts them down. There is a short honeymoon period when new ideas are welcomed even encouraged.
