Letter: A no-brainer for Basalt

I moved to this valley in 1970 and never looked back. In the ’70s, ’80s and into the ’90s, Basalt was very much a small town that had a river feel that money can’t buy. The magical confluence of the Frying Pan and Roaring Fork rivers could be seen and experienced in all their grandeur.

As with most things too good to be true, Basalt was discovered and those priceless river views disappeared so slowly that people seemed not to notice. Development had taken the rivers out of Basalt.

Serendipitously, Basalt actually has the one-time-only chance to regain that river feel and benefit in every way at the same time. How amazing is that?

If you’re still undecided on this issue, you need to take an unhurried walk from the library to the center of Basalt and then back to the library before casting your vote. Look around.

Isn’t this a no-brainer?
