For Eagle River Station
Eagle, CO, Colorado
I’m actually in support of allowing the Eagle River Station.
With the economic situation that we are in currently, I think the added jobs from tradesmen building this project would help our local economy. Plus it would help keep more money in Eagle and Eagle County.
As it is now, I tend to go west to Glenwood to shop. That’s tax money leaving our city and county.
I believe Eagle will eventually keep growing no matter what, so allow this to be built. Either a town grows or it dies.
I feel this is positive growth that will bring jobs during construction and once they are completed you’ll have more jobs created for those new businesses.
Housing is still a huge need in this area anyways. I’m sorry, but if the average person picks up the paper and sees a lock-off going for $1,000 dollars a month, they’re not going to move here.
With more housing being built, this will force more reasonable rentals and housing.
I support this project.
