Entry for February 4, 2008
The Loveland City Council has completed their annual retreat and are now ready to face the big issues again. First up will be a hearing this Wednesday to see if Don Williams can complete his Imperial Conquest of the intersection by 402 and I-25 at any price. Residents of what is now being called "old Loveland" are encouraged to attend the hearing and participate in the discussion as should anyone whose money he wants to spend.
We posted a story about the failure - so far - of Grand Station to get off the ground. It is problematic as we have been hearing from a number of sources for a very longtime that the funding was inadequate and the business plan flawed. The recent announcements that it is on track but delayed prompted us to release the information we have received which contradicts these reports.
