Letter: Speak up on FedEx issue Monday

Gerry VanderBeek
Glenwood Springs

Garfield County commissioners meeting, Monday, Nov. 17, on FedEx relocation. If you are upset about the BOCC’s highhanded approval of the relocation of the FedEx distribution center to south Glenwood then please attend and speak your mind at this meeting.

The approval was made without due regard to the impacts on neighborhood and local school traffic. While the county offered a paltry sum of $ 600,000 to mitigate the impacts of more than 230 heavy trucks a day, the reality is that south Midland and the 27th Street bridge are already way overtaxed and in dire need of multimillion-dollar improvements to deal with current traffic volumes.

Start a dialogue, stay on topic and be civil.
