Letter: Park is right choice for Basalt

Park is right choice for Basalt

Regarding Basalt: Wild is good. Are we that shortsighted to be even considering trading what would arguably be the most magnificent and spectacular river park in the valley for the promise of more tax revenue? In a town awash in tax revenue from the Willits and Whole Foods bonanza, why is this even a serious debate? Wake up, Basalt residents and developers, and realize that preserving the river-park experience to its fullest is absolutely, positively in the best interests of everyone.
