Their response was quick and shows how much the pride there is in this community asset.Miss: To the punks who marked the skatepark up with graffiti, much of it too obscene to print in the newspaper. Hit: To the Vail Town Councils decision to pursue redevelopment of the Lionshead parking structure with a Texas developer. The developers proposal calls for a conference center, more parking and better shops, all at no cost to Vail taxpayers. Miss: To the parking problems plaguing Vail. Town official estimate they need 400 more spaces now, and about 1,000 by 2025. A solution to this problem wont come a moment too soon. Hit: To the Vail Town Councils preliminary approval of new housing rules. Any attempt to address our lack of affordable housing is a good step. The new guidelines, if approved, would make sure future developments in many parts of town would pay or provide enough housing for 30 percent of the jobs they create.
