Re: “Cog deal community meeting announced, ballot measure petition possible

This deal should go to the citizens for a vote.
50 year commitment is way beyond what the mayor/council should be able to make.
Convince the public of the deals value.
Lots of questions:
Why 50 years? Most of us will be dead by then (maybe I answered that question)
Why such a rush job? decide quckly, live with results for 50 years?
What did we get in return? what were our counter offers.
What about Ruxton Avenue? It needs major fixes, upgrades.
If there is business acumen in this, it would seem to lie on the side of the Broadmoor.

It should go to a public vote. If the mayor thinks its a good deal, persuade the citizens that it is.
To start with, 50 years is way too long a committment.
Secondly, what were the counter proposals by the city?
We have a great deal of issues with Ruxton road,
how about some help maintaining/upgrading the infrastructure. Both parties would benefit from that.
What sort of cost benefit study was done by the city?
The normal business practices seem to be have been bypassed or given short shrift, perhaps in deference to the
Broadmoor demand for a short decision time.

Re: “Nicoletta, Jaray running for Manitou mayor

Nichole solve a lot of issues in her tenure. Parking has been tuned, vagrant are not harrassing residents, traffic up Ruxton has been reduced by shuttle.
I for one was swept up in the no tolerance policy. But I also witnessed the majority of residents offered an alternative, restorative justice, and almost all turned it down. I didn't, and frankly it was a great program, and Nichole ensured it continued.
As for the tree issue, they were elms (an invasive species) and are going to be replaced by the city with native trees.
She is a no nonsense, get it done mayor. I for one am appreciative of her efforts. I have found her approachable, engaged.
I didn't vote for her originally, but will vote for her re election.
