Re: “City and Broadmoor emails don't explain how land swap evolved

Thanks Pam for your comprehensive, investigative stories on this land swap which obviously is a backroom deal. We would be very disadvantaged without your reporting. As for Les W. Gruen, he served on the City Planning Commission for years - and he does know that the development process does require a plat and city zoning approval of the proposed building site before a building permit is issued (even for a deck!). His comment made me wonder if the Broadmoor aims to circumvent that process too - just like they routed around City Planning Commission to the Parks Board. Pam, so glad you don't write for GT controlled by Anschutz or we'd never be informed about our community.

Re: “Circling the drain

PS If you check for variances, you won't find that RDC got one - and it's doubtful the other government entities did. So, Trinity Brewing Co. has a right to be pissed off over this double standard. Refund, please!

Re: “Circling the drain

Hilarious! Reading this at first, it appeared that Mr. Vernon had been eliminating in the xeroscaped areas surrounding Regional Development Center for the past four years. RDC was constructed as a "green building" and received a silver LEEDs certification - and aimed to set an example to the building industry. The waterless urinals were part of the points to gain that distinction. The urnials are sanitary if they're cleaned regularly and properly. It didn't seem to be a problem until the private bidding for maintenance was eliminated and the contract bestowed upon the county. Perhaps Mr. Vernon should ask the Regional Building Commission to instruct the county maintenance crew on how to clean the toilets. It's as basic as washing your hands. As for Trinity Brewing Company - they're entitled to a $50 variance request refund and the costs associated with inconvenience and ignorance of Mr. Vernon and the Pikes Peak Regional Building Mechanical and Plumbing Committee. Where are their brains anyway?
