Letter: Protect small-town environment

It is wrong that the developers of the Oasis Creek apartments are asking for fee reductions and multiple variances of our city codes including height, parking, storage and green space.

At the March 29 P&Z meeting, project planner Ron Liston stated that Glenwood Springs is changing from a rural to an urban community. No one at the P&Z meeting questioned this assertion. The developers feel that their project is in line with the new urban status they claim we are moving toward.

It is my hope that the Glenwood Springs City Council will uphold our development codes and protect our small town environment.
