Consequences of a moratorium
Dear Editor:I couldn’t help notice another four-to-one vote in favor of the downtown moratorium. The lone thumbs down on the moratorium was, surprise surprise, Helen Klanderud. She stated that not dishing out downtown building permits would have “tremendous consequences.”I guess she’s right, there would be less diesel exhaust in the air, fewer dump trucks and backhoes blocking the streets, less noise pollution, no more, at least for now, big ugly square Mother Lode-type buildings and, gee whiz, we wouldn’t get to watch them rip down any more old buildings and that would lead to the most tremendous consequence of all – we’d be forced to maintain some of our original town character.Don DixonAspen
