Right for Eagle County

Dear Editor:I am voting for Peter Runyon and Arn Menconi because I know that they will make the right decisions related to growth of Eagle County.We have undeveloped property in Eagle County that is already zoned with the right to build 24,000 dwelling units. That’s more than 50,000 people in addition to our current population! Increasing the zoning on a piece of property should be a rare occurrence. If increases in zoning keep happening, Eagle County will be more than 100,000 people way too soon and we will all be saying that Eagle County is too crowded.Let’s support transfer of development rights in Eagle County. This would force developers to build on property that already has the zoning they want, or they would need to buy the zoning rights from other property owners. Peter Runyon and Arn Menconi can help preserve the future of Eagle County so that we can enjoy the quality of life that made us move here.Mike ClaymonEdwards
