Rec centers belong in big cities
While canvassing local neighborhoods in opposition to the proposed $25 million dollar Crown Mountain Recreational Center (to be paid totally by property owners), I was interested to hear from a few of my neighbors who, are in favor of what will result in a 10-plus percent property tax increase, saying it is inconvenient to drive 10 to 20 miles in order to enjoy a dedicated recreation center.
When I moved from Los Angeles to the Roaring Fork Valley over 40 years ago, one major attraction was that I prefer to live where there is not a 7-Eleven, gas station and health spa on every corner. If that is what you are looking for, you can find these "amenities" throughout the big cities of America.
Vote "no" this November on ballot measures 4C and 4D.
