Vail Daily letter: ‘Yes’ on Skier Building

A “yes” vote is the right vote on the mail-in ballot for financing the Skier Building.

In less than a year the Hoffmanns have renovated east Avon and filled every open retail shop and helped open a new restaurant. Christy Sports is emblematic of the modernization of Avon. In west Avon, the Town Council has done a remarkable job in constructing the Main Street Mall and plaza, including the very best mural in all of western Colorado. It is just the right match for east Avon at the right time. In just one year, the Avon Town Council has supported three new festivals to support our business community and add to the fun of living in Avon. The pavilion is paid for and we will be one of the most notable stages in the valley. Avon Road connecting east to west looks amazing — no more pink railroad bridge, and aged, energy wasting street lights are gone. Avon’s smart new logo is prominent as a welcome sign. We have a major 2015 Championship marker.

The Skier Building debt does not require any new taxes — that says a lot about fiscal management of the Town Council taking care of our tax dollars in a smart way. Ballots are due on Jan. 20. Please join me in voting “yes.”
