Vail Daily letter: We support river park
We just wanted to express our full support for the Eagle River corridor project. We do this as both small business owners and as a young family. We feel the small increase in sales tax will not have a negative impact on our business, nor do we mind paying that minute tax because having that space on the river for recreation for our family for years to come would be wonderful.
The plans to create a beautiful and useful space on the river will bring a lot of people to town that will most certainly help all businesses, and will add just more thing that makes Eagle even more of a gem within the Rocky Mountains. We have already chosen to live in this town and this town alone because of the beauty it offers. The trails. The view. The carefree moments we are so lucky to experience when we take the time to enjoy our surroundings. The river is already here for us as human beings who live on this planet … why not make it accessible if it is within our power and our rights to do so?
