Belongs on ballot

Although this is not the perfect solution, it is still worthy of consideration by Eagle County voters. To this end, I ask the commissioners to ensure that the proposal appears on the ballot THIS November.

We must take advantage of the recent lull in the development feeding frenzy that has gripped Eagle County since the early “90s. Whether one agrees or disagrees with the proposed measure, I think all would agree that it deserves to be put before the voters.
