Re: “UPDATE: Fire Department slashes service level due to "significant" budget error

spartan 771

I am somewhat confused on 2 points:

1) How the police interact with 'criminals': is that not a part of 'public safety?
2) 'Morons of this community': Would this refer to the city administration, the police, or the public?

There have been calls from within segments of the community for an 'independent' investigation on the recent shooting - Do you have thoughts to share: A KwikPoll below - thank you if you care to respond.

Re: “Plan sprouts for Venetucci

Alright! Another dismantling of a well-known and loved bastion of the community. Thank heavens all these people moving here from somewhere else and the rapid growth the city can't handle are completely removing any semblance of what made this town great. Make sure you remove Mr. Venetucci's name from whatever it becomes so the erasure is complete.

Nice to see the morons of this community are more concerned about a criminal being shot rather than public safety.

The idea that cuts like this are the result of an "error" says that a hard look needs to be taken at the upper levels of management. Something like this can not be brushed aside as "Oops."

Get it right...the UNION is crying foul. Like they always do if they feel like they're not getting what they "deserve".

Re: “DeVon Bailey protesters disrupt State of the City speech

From the local Daily, an interesting comment from a local 'elected':

"But City Councilman Tom Strand complained that the protests are NOT CONSTRUCTIVE and noted that his second term is more contentious and vitriolic than his first."

The Boston Tea Party was a 'Protest' Familiar with this event?

The very first article in the BILL OF RIGHTS:

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to PETITION THE GOVERNMENT FOR A REDRESS OF GRIEVANCES." (Protests)

Stand (and Gaebler) while you may not agree with the protesters - or what they stand for - -

THEY DAMN SURE HAVE THE RIGHT TO PROTEST AS GRANTED TO THEM IN THE 1700'S BY A GROUP OF MEN WITH SUPERIOR INTELLECTUAL CAPABILITIES EXCEEDING THAT OF WHAT HAS RUN FOR LOCAL OFFICE LATELY.

Without protests:

Only white males would be allowed to own property,

Women would not be allowed to vote,

Slaves would still be slaves - - -

And - - we could not buy beer!

Were it not be for 'protests' - county commissioners could serve three consecutive terms. Scary thought.

Are local elected officials the reasons people are becoming 'Vitriolic'?

Re: “Despite reports, Gold Hill Mesa is a fine neighborhood

Oh, Greg. I hope you enjoy your home and neighborhood as much as we do (in GHM by the way). I don't think anyone who lives outside of this neighborhood should worry about it so much. We are doing just fine!

Re: “Despite reports, Gold Hill Mesa is a fine neighborhood

Greg, our house is actually 20 feet from our neighbor to the south and we love it! The GHM community was designed so that my open side is on our neighbor's closed side. It's perfect! And as a busy family who owns a local small business we bought here because we didn't want a big yard.

Also, as anyone who knows my husband will tell you he's an expert researcher (he even researched & diagnosed his own very rare cancer -- which he had BEFORE we moved to GHM) and he did a ton of research before we purchased our home in GHM. We are 1000% confident in our decision and actually love that GHM has reclaimed this land and turned it into the best community in Colorado Springs!

Re: “Despite reports, Gold Hill Mesa is a fine neighborhood

Hey, Greg, no worries if you don't like a close-knit, new urban (look it up, Greg) walkable neighborhoo where your neighbors are your friends and your kids run and play together on the green streets (also look up "playborhood"). The design is very intentional and we moved here to raise our kids because of it. But no one asked you to move here!

However, you, like the Gazette "reporter," should really do your homework before you cast unfounded aspersions based on your ignorance. As you can see from this thread, many of my neighbors in Gold Hill Mesa HAVE.

Re: “Despite reports, Gold Hill Mesa is a fine neighborhood

For those of a certain age Gold Hill Mesa cannot help but evoke a certain 1962 Malvina Reynolds song. That said, different folks have vastly different sensibilities. I have no quarrel at all with those who choose to live there and wish them long lives and good health. As the trees continue to grow the eyesore quality of an unbroken sea of rooftops signaling homes built far too close together slowly diminishes. Still, how can you not believe that the houses are that close to one another in order to maximize profit for the developer? And if the developer will do that for monetary gain, what else might that same developer do in terms of safety?

Re: “Despite reports, Gold Hill Mesa is a fine neighborhood

Welcome Jessie! It was great meeting you last week. We did our research too. Having been here from Peregrine 2.5 years ago, we have had 0 issues with our home and don't know anyone who has. Hi-Point built our home and has come back to repair all of the minor issues we've had. We love Gold Hill Mesa!

Re: “Despite reports, Gold Hill Mesa is a fine neighborhood

Greg1,
I hope that you REALIZE that the streets you mention: Silver Mine, Cold Claim and Pyrite Terrace ARE NOT in Gold Hill Mesa - those streets are in the neighborhood to the south of us in the Crown Hill Mesa Subdivision. Being a concrete construction company owner for over 31 years, I do believe much of the issues with the streets they have over there are due to a lack of proper compaction of the soils after the city utility lines were installed. There are other areas in CS (not on the west side) that have the same issue with their streets. I have friends that have homes in the Crown Hill Mesa Subdivision, namely on Silver Mine and they have owned their (20+ year old) homes for 10+ years now and they have had NO ISSUES with their homes. Neither the streets or the homes are "sliding" down the hill as you state. My mother was a resident at Brookdale Bear Creek, which is built up on the hill on 21st street and Lower Gold Camp and that building has been there for many years and is very solid. I have been in that building many, many times and have seen no structural issues inside the building or anywhere on the property. I live in Gold Hill Mesa, and have since February 2008 and I have had ZERO issues with my home! WE LOVE LIVING HERE - the close proximity to our neighbors is wonderful as we all have been able to get to know one another - it's like having a big extended family! Most of us have become to close (relationship-wise) to our neighbors! As a close knit community, we often look after each others children and pets, we take care of our neighbor's trash cans and mail while they are away and most of us even know our immediate neighbors garage door codes or have keys to their homes if we need to put their trash can in the garage or to close their garage door if it gets left open. There are many big groups of us that all go out to dinner together, hosts parties at each others homes and even vacation and spend Holidays together!! We also rally together when one of our neighbors has been ill/had surgery to provide them with meals or just a helping hand. We help one another with construction projects and moving. If a neighbor needs a ride to the airport or to borrow a ladder or jumper cables - neighbors step up to help. Our previous neighborhoods of 20+ years sure were not like that! We all LOVE the closeness (in proximity and in relationships) and will thoroughly enjoy living in Gold Hill Mesa in our "cookie-cutter, yuppie houses" (as you refer to them) for many years to come! I wouldn't wan to live anywhere else!!!

Re: “Despite reports, Gold Hill Mesa is a fine neighborhood

Please go ask the dozens of health care professionals who chose to raise our kids here. Im a former army Nurse, my wife is a retired Army Nurse Practitioner, feel free to drop by and discuss why we chose to raise our three boys here. Hold Hill Mesa is the PERFECT place to raise a family!!!! Come look at all the kids playing outside. Paradise!!

Re: “Despite reports, Gold Hill Mesa is a fine neighborhood

Greg, we LOVE our walkable master planned community! Out developers did the hard work to make Gold HIll Mesa mitigated so we have the most stable ground to build. Drive through it one evening and see the vibrant community we have built. Weve heard the sky is falling garbage for years. Guess what? Were as popular and successful as EVER!! Please go hate somewhere else. WEST SIDE is the best side.

Re: “Despite reports, Gold Hill Mesa is a fine neighborhood

Very well written Jessie. Id like to invite anybody to our concert this Saturday at 400 at the community center. We have set up a tent with Ask a Resident sign so anyone with concerns can come talk with locals. If you have kids bring their swimsuits as the infamous MEGASLIDE will be up and running. (Big slip and slide).
