Letter: Vote to keep Basalt’s Lions Park

Now is the time to vote on Basalt’s future. There are three options to choose from that have been brought forward. In a nutshell, Option 1 and Option 3 allow Lions Park to be developed and built on. Option 2 keeps Lions Park as an open space.

In the past, Lions Park has been a fantastic area for Sunday markets, evening concerts, picnics, festivals and winter ice skating, just to mention a few events. Let’s keep this beautiful, green area and not cover it with buildings.

Voting is very easy. Just go to http://www.ourtownplanning.org, click on “Participate,” register and vote for Option 2 before June 14. The 10 minutes this may take out of your schedule will be so important to Old Town Basalt. Let’s keep Basalt green.
