Billeaud: To the Breck mayor and town council

Re: "Proposed gas station fuels frustration in Breckenridge," by Caddie Nath, Nov. 14

My wife and I have lived in Silver Shekel subdivision for over 20 years. While we respect and generally agree with the way you have managed development in Breck and the surrounding area over the years, we do have serious concerns about the amount and type of development that has been ongoing across Highway 9 from our home.

Mostly, our concerns are related to: 1) Noise., 2) excessive nighttime lighting and 3) heavy truck traffic - all resulting from the development you are, and have been, allowing just south of Breckenridge.

This letter is prompted by an article in today's paper mentioning a possible "gas station" across from the entrance to Silver Shekel. We fear that this would exacerbate the exact three issues mentioned in my previous sentence!

Please, please, use your best judgement, discretion, common sense and most importantly, empathy, as you make decisions which are negatively affecting the quality of life which drew many of us to this lovely, once-unspoiled area in the first place. Thank you.
