Last week’s poll question — “Do you think the increased popularity of backcountry travel is good or bad?” — attracted 844 votes. An overwhelming majority of voters think increased popularity is bad, with 685 votes, or 81.16 percent, saying it attracts too many skiers and snowboarders who aren’t properly educated or experienced into dangerous terrain. Just 107 votes, or 12.68 percent, were “good” votes, citing the popularity as a good awareness tool for the general public. The remaining 52 votes, or 6.16 percent, were “not sure.”
On Monday night, the City Council listened to ideas for each old building. However, nothing laid out what the community space would actually entail — only aspirations and gathered community comment.
