Letter: Basalt, a river town with a development problem

Basalt, a river town with a development problem

Thank you, Jacque Whitsitt, for taking a stand. I urge the town leaders to have vision, be strong and make the tough but right decision about development along the Roaring Fork River. We have plenty of beautifully designed buildings sitting unoccupied. The riverfront needs to be the riverfront. Please remember who you are and why we live here. Can’t we figure out a way to buy the remaining 2.4 acres of land? The development plan along the river should be no more development.
