A fix not a nix

Dear Editor: Squirm night should be lively with lots of questions and answers. But before the fun begins, let’s make sure the public is aware that the Friends of Rio Grande are not trying to NIX the City Council’s approval of a recycling center next to Rio Grande Park as was reported in your front page article “It’s time to squirm.” The recycle center drop off location is not going anywhere else, as City Council has already determined the park is the best place for the drop off location. It’s been there for 17 years. The upcoming vote is about construction of two buildings in the recycle center which is a part of Rio Grande Park. The Friends are asking voters to vote no on the two buildings, and instead, shield the recycling containers with trees and berms. The city has already successfully shielded the containers from sight along the park side with trees and berms. Why can’t trees and berms be planted along the rest of the recycling center drop off location?Toni KronbergAspen
