Letter: Weed Capital of the West

Welcome to West Glenwood Springs — Weed Capital of the West.” This is the message one gets from the West Glenwood roundabout.

What’s going on here? The rest of Glenwood, including roundabouts, is tastefully landscaped with greenery and blooming plants. Nature is indeed beautiful; however, the mix of natural and planted in this area leaves a lot to be desired.

City of Glenwood Springs, state of Colorado, whoever spent money for these trees and plants, pick up the trash, dig up the weeds and cultivate some blooming plants. If that isn’t feasible, perhaps the site could be made educational by labeling the weed species.
