It is time to look at our town and start doing the right thing to protect this special place where we live.

First of all, recognize what nature has given us for free. We have the beautiful fourteeners to our west. Also, our town has the nicest river for us to fish, raft and enjoy.

Is it possible calling the new building "ugly" is a bit harsh? I see a building with a couple awesome new businesses and a huge number of long term rentals. Making building codes more stringent and limiting number of housing units on MUMS may possibly preserve the historical character. But saying it will help downtown business is a bit of a stretch.

It sure would be great if more effort and money was put into the Courthouse and the town campus concept. Mandating property owners/business owners follow rules that the town/town commissions seems exempt from undermines the support needed to preserve and protect the historical character of this great town.
