Red Feather no better second time around

Dear Editor,

The following comments are not directed as a for or against the Red Feather development, but rather the manner in which such developments are approved, in what seems to be business as usual in our town.

The dictionary defines extortion – to obtain by coercion or intimidation, and bribery – something given or offered to induce or influence. In absolute terms, if allowing a 58-home development to increase to 149 homes by annexing it into the city limits was not good for Glenwood Springs when first presented, then it is not good for Glenwood Springs the second time. And if it is approved the second time, the only thing we can assume is that extortion and/or bribery prevailed.

Let our yes be yes and our no be no.
