No, I don’t enjoy the increase in traffic congestion, noise, trash and crime that has occurred in the last 26 years I have lived in Silverthorne, but I don’t assume that all of my neighbors moved to Silverthorne for the exact same reasons that I did, nor do I expect them to feel the same way I do about what this community should look like. I think it would pretty simple of me, if I did.
