Re: “A new vision for downtown Springs in Olympic Museum area

Well this is another scam by the developers to make themselves richer. It is laughable how they try to "sell" it by saying all the things they think the voting public wants to hear - no taxpayer funding, good for growth and so on.
Maybe they would be more believable if this community had done anything over the past 40 years to maintain and keep up with the existing infrastructure, jobs, community issues like public safety and education. Instead it is always looking for the "next best thing". Maybe why all the previous downtown development plans have failed. Does anyone ever stop to think if people wanted to live in Denver they would just move there? I would say they have figured out a way to get around the public voting on their project but special tax districts impact everyone who lives or visits this community just who else do you think is going to pay the higher prices to eat, work, shop or live in this "New" downtown? And what becomes of the existing downtown? Just let the weeds grow until that can be re-developed for profit.
