Re: “Strawberry Fields planning continues, county pact still alive

As the author of the National Register document that placed NCCP on the National Register in July of 2009 I would refer people to the Federal Regulations governing the delisting of any Federal Historic Place. Sec. 60.15 Removing properties from the National Register. It is a process involving as much scholarship and political effort as the actual listing and is time consuming. NCCP was admitted to the listing under the Criterion Recreation, Entertainment and Conservation 1884-1959. It is reasonable to consider the proposed use for the property is the same regardless of ownership. The rights of the owner of a historical property are also explained, Sec. 60.14 Changes and revisions to properties listed in the National Register. Under this regulation the Federal government allows changes to historical properties including the altering of a boundry of a historic property. This action would require a new submittal for listing. I do not see a benefit to the citizens of Colorado Springs, or to NCCP by depriving it of its remarkable history and the recognition the park deserves. We should remember in light of our recent fire and flood history that living on the edge of a National Register park dramatically increases the amount of funds that come into the area and the speed with which they are transferred. The delisting of any historic property only hurts the citizens of a community and the future generations who can benefit from preserving something that defines who we are as a people.

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

As third generation of my family to live in this community I am sickened by the poisonous comments of special interest funding groups with too much money funding the campaigns of candidates they believe they can control. Local politics historically, has been driven by issues. Voters have the right to select candidates who will represent their home, neighborhood, schools and community, equally. Any effort to have our lives micromanaged by a few wealthy individuals is contrary to the principals of this Democratic Republic. Jeffersonians would argue that no Republic can tolerate inequality and survive. In the words of President Andrew Jackson,"It is to be regretted,that the rich and powerful too often bend the acts of government to their selfish purposes."
