I was wondering who chad was and looked at some of your other posts. now I know. There is only one Chad I know that is 6'2 and weighs 155lbs. What up? Are you still living with that lovely lady Steph?

Let us know if you head this way to ride or play.

As for Ego boy. Don't worry he'll get his, either at the poker table or Vegas style in the back alley late at night.

Hey Mut,

I think I gotta be at least 165 now. Steph and I are doing well, living in Arvada. Let's be in touch.

Just wanted to let everyone know that South Main project was just awarded the GOCO grant for the whitewater park! This means that they'll have plenty of funds to build an awesome venue.

Frankly, I think the whole development idea sucks. We should keep the land near the river as pristine as possible. It's already a clusterfuck down there anyway, but at least you don't have to look at some goddamn development every hundred yards yet.
There's my two cents.

What difference is it going to make to a person passing through, you would see the development for a hundred yards then be back to the way the river is now. All of the land down there is owned and Jed and Katie were lucky enough to get the property they did. If they don't develope it then there is still just an old dump on the side of the river, litterally. The property they got is the old BV dump. I think it is a great thing what they are doing for both BV and the boating community. When you grow up in a town like BV you know how little there is to do there, and I think this project could stimulate some major growth, and maybe the kids there wont have to go at least to Salida to do anything other than drink.
Just thought i would throw my 2 cents out there.

One nice thing about this development is that it concentrates people in an urban social setting. Instead of a house every few hundred yards, the town-houses are together. This is a very environmentally friendly way to develop in the mountains.

I think that the fact of "growth" is far more out of our hands then anything. Its really just a matter of time, people will expand into other areas that were once fields, or dumps, or w/e. I think that the way they are proposing to build it will possibly limit growth. If I remember right, I think that they were trying to make it so everything is in walkable distance.....Does this make it hard for growth? Maybe i read it wrong>

The development would be concentrated which is different than the development that has been going on in the BV area for the last 10 years. Every thing that had been happening has been expanding north and west towards the mountains. Instead of 5 to 40 acres for each lot the houses would all be together and every thing would be in walking distance. It would be about the same distance to walk to any of the schools in town and it is right at the end of main street so everything on main street would be easily in walking distance. Everything else in town is in walking distance too if you live in town. I think it is a great thing what they are doing. As far as the river would be concerned there isn't going to be more developments like this in the near future because the land by the river is owned and people already have their homes and not every one is going to develop their land. Going through that stretch now the houses are far enough on the hill that they are not taking anything away from the scenery anyways so I don't see the problem with having the development by the river. I have seen the plans for the development and the houses will be more aesthetic than most the homes on the river now.
Ben for people coming in it will be very easy for growth and for the land usage if will limit growth.

Yea, I agree that growth sucks, but as long as people continue to have lots of babies, it's reality. You think this is bad, visit the Northeast or California. And if you think that's bad, visit Tokyo, Calcutta, or Bejing.

Idaho is looking sweet......
