I do not wish to see this unequal swap take place at all.
Wolves belong here in Colorado. Livestock guardians will help reduce livestock losses but hey ranchers should get reimbursement for livestock lost. The payback in increased habitat diversity is shown in studies. Better wolves than too many deer and elk. I would be glad to see ranchers get the monetary compensation if wolves could run free.
My husband and I carve native Colorado rocks into smoking stones. Does this mean my art is now illegal?
We could have neighborhood coalitions to make each neighborhood niche become more inviting, and the city to allow us to rate projects in order of importance... We need the communication of the community's impacted citizens, in smaller blocks,to address concerns. Storm drainage, parks and recreation and infrastructure to be coordinated with the neighborhoods first. If it's your neighborhood, and you passionately cared, would you pay more for that pothole to get repaired you crunch thru every morning? Would your neighbors agree? Would you band together with the next 'hood for the same project? Can we?
I would like to see a recall of the mayor.
Why does the power go to Xcel? Where is OUR county power coming from? Why can't this kickstart El Paso and Colorado Springs into getting wind power to our own Utilities? We need more solar incentives, as well! Tiny first step, so kudos....but we need to be running full tilt here.
Water respects no boundaries. It will just flow along the path of least resistance. Mayor Bach, have you ever seen a mass wasting incident? Do you know the destructive force that is coming for the next 10 years due to fire loss? Even small thunderstorms are magnified to devastating effect. Our county needs a comprehensive approach with low impact development in the riparian habitat. Listen to your water engineers, and plan for the long haul.
