Letter: City is too pro-development

City is too pro-development
What a s— show. This council is so pro-development, it's not discussable. It happened when Mayor Steve Skadron appointed Dwayne Romero as councilman. The work session Monday to refine development incentives was just one small piece of a larger problem. The city development staff is pro-development, too, but both the council and the staff should get their direction from us. The community is losing control of its growth.
We are losing our history more quickly than we can build on it. I am pro-Aspen! I am pro-business. I am not anti-growth — I am anti-destroy.
We can balance our heritage and specialness with prosperity and opportunity. We do not need to kill the goose that laid the golden egg.
