RFTA is out of bounds
September 17, 2012
Can you imagine living without trees?
Wow. The Basalt Town Council neglected to understand the destruction of a purposefully designed, piecemeal approval process. The council failed constituents and allowed yet another rehearsed and illusory performance by the Roaring Fork Transportation Authority.
The Old Orchard Inn land and El Jebel bus-rapid-transit stop are now marked for failure. And the public is being quieted on issues that are real and exist as a whole to the master plan. Blah, blah, blah the pushy board says take your seat and vote as you are told.
I challenge you to spend time standing on the site. The infrastructure of an adequately sized park-and-ride cannot exist on the small corner host to abundant fruit trees and flowing water. It surely is transparent to all that RFTA is building upon each successive application to achieve in parts what it could not achieve otherwise. Do not allow.
