Re: “Town hall shows sharp division over creekside camping ban

Our community has some major dividing issues, from Broadmoor/City landswap, low income housing projects in the works in The Bluffs community, to the explosion of the homeless population that has lead to this discussion. As a member of the community finding constructive ways to contribute in my kids school, homeless medical clinic, Local YMCA , paying taxes etc there seems to be feelings of frustration that the City and its leaders are working harder to protect the rights of the homeless and vagrants then the rights of homeowners and communities these folks directly affect. Not to mention the health and safety issues that arise from lifestyles that lead to more self destructing patterns. Something has to be done to end the cycle for the sake of the individuals and for the community members at large. Its easy to say is a NIMBY concern for the ivywild and west side areas but that is not the case. email your city council member and demand they address this issue NOW!!

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!
