After sitting through several hours of comments about Belleayre proposals, I still have two questions. If not this, what? If not now, when?
I heard many speakers use “scare” words we’ve heard for 15 years - words and phrases that don’t even need full sentences around them to stimulate knee-jerk reactions: sprawl, mega, massive, casino, pesticides, stormwater, community character, menial jobs, traffic, ridge line development.
But thankfully, it seems those words no longer have the power to frighten as they once did and the old arguments don’t hold up.
