Re: “Legal opinion released; Zoo urges approval of land swap

I say keep the ponies and horses in the zoo, wait they had been there but the zoo couldn't seem to handle them and got rid of them.....seems like the BroAdmoor and the businesses they give money to, are on the Boards of, etc. etc. are all in favor of the swap and are now villianizing the citizens that oppose it....what folks are forgetting is that the BroAdmoor said NO when the City approached them about purchasing a few of the properties the BroAdmoor has in the deal. Jack Damioli, CEO, of the BroAdmoor very publically said the BroAdmoor is not a willing seller of the lands, but seems eager to get rid of the properties in a "trade" that would benefit them, over time, the most....A few words come to mind in this scenario: cronyism, coercion, bribery....

Re: “Gazette fails to make disclosure in land-swap editorial

let's hope the City Council members are well aware of the when, where, why, and how the land swap endorsements are being given. Of all those in favor of the BroAdmoor taking our public land (instead of selling us the land the BroAdmoor truly doesn't want) it would appear that many if not most supporters are in some way, shape, or form connected to the BroAdmoor professionally or personally......

Re: “A lot to give in Manitou

YES!!! Start working toward making the 2-3 million back the city put into the Incline, remember the BroAdmoor has put NOTHING in for repair, preservation or maintain.....on parking that makes sense!!!! My first out cry with the land proposal in January had to do with what the BroAdmoor receives....the two parcels are all to make $$$$$ and the BroAdmoor is only giving land in the swap that the public would have to spend money on (a money pit/s).....City Council wake up!!!!!!

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

Thanks for finding more information and sharing with the public about some of the ins and outs of the easements! If we, the public, had known that our public lands would be for sale to private for profit businesses like the BroAdmoor then the public may have approached the Palmer Land Trust to conserve all of North Cheyenne Canon, which includes Strawberry fields! The problem is North Cheyenne Canon is to be held by the people/public/citizens of Colorado Springs in perpetuity, since 1885 into forever (so why would there need to be a conservation easement?!) North Cheyenne Canon, Strawberry fields, was acquired by citizen's vote and should be voted on by the citizens to swap/give/trade/exhange/sell!

Re: “Land swap opponents rally at Penrose House

"The first Heritage Series session focuses on trails and open space, both critical dimensions to our heritage and backyard recreation and tourism. It includes panelists reviewing our rich past, current complex mix of public and private assets, and promising future."

LOVE this, North Cheyenne Canon, Strawberry fields, is part of this rich heritage! Keep public lands in public it, hike it, rest in it, but DON'T commercialize it!
