Charlie Santaularia: Dillon needs to quit Yacht Club battle

Charlie Santaularia, Managing Director

Thanks so much for the recent articles highlighting the issues between the Town of Dillon and the lower Yacht Club condominiums. I am an owner at the Yacht Club and I think it is time the town stop using taxpayer funds to fight a battle that has already been decided. Bringing this to the attention of the citizens hopefully will continue to get the point across that the town has lost, and is just losing further support from their citizens. Dillon is a fantastic place to be and why waste resources on what would appear to an outside party as a small deal. Instead, the town could focus on what is truly needed – a revival of downtown business and showcasing the amenities we do have. That would do much great good for the citizens than trying to fight them. We should be able to work together on this, not have to waste everyone’s time and money.

That said, I was told (prior to being an owner at the Yacht Club) that the town had one or two board members who have/had their personal residences along the route of the new recpath and are both big bikers. It seems almost obvious that they would personally benefit from the construction of the recpath along their easement, and it might have been an effort that could have been resolved outside of the courtroom if it were not for their private gain. Just a thought for some investigative journalism and to continue to highlight the frustration of the citizens with the town’s decisions.
