Letter: Don’t blame new buyer for losing Windstar

The article in the Times about the Rocky Mountain Institute and county’s failure to reserve parking at Windstar seems to imply that I am blaming the new buyer for cutting off public access. I’m certainly not. He purchased property that (for more than five years) the county failed to, and the Rocky Mountain Institute refused to, “encumber” with public parking to Windstar. It is free and clear. He can do whatever he wants. If you’re looking where to cast blame, guys, look in the mirror. The public was relying on the Rocky Mountain Institute and the county to preserve access to John Denver’s legacy to us. You failed to do that. It’s not his fault. To try to blame the new buyer may be convenient, but it is wrong.
