Letter: Glenwood should retain its small town character

Regarding 413 new dwellings in Glenwood Ridge: I would like to see Glenwood Springs and the Four Mile corridor maintain its small town charm. This small town charm is our most valuable asset. And once it is gone it is gone forever. Perpetual growth is not necessary or inevitable. However if we fail to act responsibly, we can all look forward to increased traffic and pollution, water shortages, overcrowded schools, overworked police and fire departments and less wildlife. We have a real gem of a small town here in Glenwood Springs. I just hope the majority of our citizens stand up and fight to protect this gem.
