Vail Daily letter: Selfish indeed
In response to the letter from Mr. (Chris) Anthony (Thursday’s Vail Daily), I want to expand on his discussion regarding being selfish. We are so selfish that we want to destroy the natural habitat of many wild animals by creating trails in that stream valley so bikers can freely ride in the natural habitat. We are so selfish that we want to spend $181,000 of local taxpayers’ dollars to create three trails that will be used mostly by non-local taxpayers. We are so selfish that we want to spend $50,000 of taxpayers’ money to create a trail across a pristine mountainside that can be seen from over 250 homes and by anyone traveling in Wildridge. We will not be so selfish that we prohibit the local youth to “get out there and understand the surroundings’” by using the trails in the West Avon Preserve.
