Letter: Here come the developers

Springtime in the valley is when the developers with visions of improving Snowmass, Aspen and Basalt ooze forth from wherever they spend their winters and demand that they’re special and are not governed by our rules. They want more than allowed and don’t want to do what is required.

They want to cash in at little or no risk to themselves but plenty of risk to the public. It’s always such a comical dance. They speak a special language where “screw you” translates to “trust me!”
