Letter: Land near CRMS belongs to the taxpayers

Originally addressed Dear CRMS administration:

Either clearly define the section of County Road 106 that goes through your campus so that people may use their right-of-way without feeling like they are intruding, or don’t. But please stop erecting new buildings right on/around the county road and then exclaiming that students are in danger because you built their dorms on one side of the public path and classrooms on the other.

And stop petitioning Garfield County to vacate a public access. That land belongs to the taxpayers of Garfield County, and as a nonprofit school, you are not included in that group. Carbondale Town Council, Garfield County Planning and Zoning Commission and CDOT have all recommended no vacation (not to mention countless residents of unincorporated Garfield County) so if the BOCC goes the other way it’s pretty obvious their judgment has been compromised. Instead of waiting another 3-5 years only to regurgitate this issue, why not open an honest dialogue with your neighbors to solve it once and for all?
