Re: “Spotlight on dark money in Colorado Springs city election

They are spending an inordinate amount of money to get control of the City Council. That job pays less than $7000 a year. Something big must be in the works for them to need their people in those positions. Time will tell what it is. Corruption stinks! Thank you Pam for giving us information that we would never get otherwise.

Re: “Resident suggests plot be labeled 'Suthers Park'

Wonderful- Suthers Park!! He worked hard for it so he should have the credit. Let's start a petition to name it that. I will gladly donate the ribbon and scissors for the opening ceremony, as well as a plaque for his name. I will also provide a photographer to memorialize the momentous occasion. I assume the parks department has plans to update the abandoned structure (Suthers Hall ) on the property where we can hold his reception.
Great idea!

Re: “Colorado Springs parks report shows good value

Since when does the City Parks department spend so much time at the Broadmoor? Why is the head of the marketing department for the Broadmoor on the panel? I agree: too cozy in my opinion. The Broadmoor is not the only business in town, but our city government sure acts like they are.

Re: “A conservation easement could settle some land-swap issues, but it's complicated

The location of the easements was changed in 2006 as a part of a development proposal by Morley-Howard Investments, which purchased the property for residential subdivision," That is a truly disgusting scenario but sadly, all too common. I can't believe that even with no detailed plans for a "building envelope" in a meadow on historic parkland, no specific answers or plans on burying utilities and who would bear the cost of doing so, no transparency on appraisals (no access to those work files even for council) and 4 denied CORA requests about this exchange that the matter of Strawberry Fields is even up for debate. Sad commentary on our city.

Re: “Land swap opponents rally at Penrose House

4 denied CORA requests, no transparency with appraisals or even utility plans. This is a bad deal for the public. Thank you Pam for looking into it.

Re: “City tally: 66 percent oppose Broadmoor land swap

So many polls ( 4 by my count) have been started by supporters of this swap in an attempt to show that the people approve, yet none of them have been given to council or made public. Why? Probably because they can't get any poll that shows public support for it. Sure wish council does not listen to the people on this issue and not big business.
