Re: “Colorado Sports and Events Center stadium, arena to host Switchbacks, Colorado College hockey downtown

All of you, with the exception of Diane, should not be responding to this unless you've done your research and understand all the criteria associated with requesting Regional Tourism Tax dollars.

*All the projects do not need to go to vote unless local tax dollars are required.
*The Bill Hybl Sports Medicine and Performance Center (funded by RTD dollars) is at UCCS so I'm thinking having the event center at Colorado College is OK.
*The Mayor did not lie. He said he would not support any of the projects, specifically the downtown stadium and event center, if the funding needs to come from local tax dollars collected by the citizens. No taxes will be needed to fund these projects.
*The funding needs to be used on tourism related projects (not pot holes or road construction) and ground needs to be broken by December of this year or the city will lose that funding

gregaj7, what consequences. Please enlighten us.

Re: “Sky Sox could be renamed for edible testicles and you've got to be kidding us

These are the absolute worst names ever and completely embarrassing as well. Let's turn our minor league baseball team into a joke before they even start playing. Why not use a native animal or bird - bobcats, marmots, black bears, bobwhites, nighthawks, etc. Why didn't the Rocky Mountain Antelopes or the Colorado Springs Coyotes not make the list? Shoot, even the Colorado Springs Whooping Cranes is better. Sheesh!

Re: “Environmentalist Cameron Brown hauls a grand piano out to Garden of the Gods at sunrise

Shannon, there is no historical proof that Native Americans considered Garden of the Gods as sacred ground. I am also a native and the park needs to be protected on all levels. I'm sure there was no impact to have this guy play his piano in the Garden but who's to say you traipsing all over the park exploring caves and not staying on designated paths is not affecting the park's natural balance. There has to be park guidelines in place to protect this amazing gift to our city. Charles Elliott Perkins donated the park to the City of Colorado Springs so the public can enjoy this open space - not just for locals but tourists to our community as well.

Re: “Reader: Trump is president and you need to get over it

Trump is consumed by power and it makes no difference if he is conservative or liberal. He will make decisions on behalf of our country and it's citizens (the horror) to feed his ego and only his ego. He is not a good person, he does not represent our country's values and he has NEVER walked a mile in anyone's shoes but his own. He is the president but he is not my president and I am looking forward to 2020 when, hopefully, this nightmare and global embarrassment finally ends.

Re: “Get out and vote!

How about leave MY city! I'm sure there's a better conservative city within our state that would make more sense for your conservative perspective.

Re: “Where should the city's beloved/loathed stadium go?

Why is it a bad idea all around? Do you think we have sufficient venues to host events - sports, festivals, concerts? News flash - we don't. The stadium and event center would bring even more positive growth and development to the downtown area. It will get rid of the old dilapidated warehouses, clean up Sierra Madre, Sahwatch and we'll see lofts, markets and other types of vendors pop up. Doesn't sound too bad.

Re: “Spring's downtown bicycle infrastructure progresses despite growing pains

I work downtown and Weber Street is a mess! I get why and the benefit but turning it to one lane each way has turned a downtown north/south major thoroughfare into traffic chaos especially with the added road construction and building construction taking place.

Cars are still driving in the bike lane thinking it's a turn lane and those waiting to get into Dutch Brothers use the bike lane as a waiting line. The vertical delineators do help somewhat but now they limit the space when a vehicle turns left from an east/west street onto Weber, especially if cars are stopped at the light on Weber. I would not even consider parking my car on Weber now. And if the delineators are removed for the plows, that's going to be even more interesting when we do have snow on the road.

It's been a couple of months and people still pull up behind the parked cars thinking it's a lane (it's actually kind of funny to watch their reaction - honking and yelling at the empty parked cars in front of them). Because Weber is no longer an easy north/south route, Nevada and Wahsatch are experiencing more traffic.
