Letter (Sept. 9): Basalt’s soul is on the line

Basalt’s soul is on the line

Relocating the residents of the Pan and Fork Mobile Home Park will erode Basalt’s diversity, sustainability and liveliness, and amounts to takings by the government. If there were expensive residences where the mobile home parks are, no one would ever have been asked to move.

If the true goal of the town was to make the floodplain areas of Basalt safe from massive floods, much of South Side would never have been built, and there would be no condos and nice homes along the river.
