Don Hansen: Vote ‘no’ for the Blue River Trail

Don Hansen

Summit County is fortunate to have a nationally recognized network of multi-use trails that connect the county. Unfortunately, the quality trail experience is currently interrupted about halfway through the Town of Silverthorne. The homeowners who have refused to negotiate with the Town of Silverthorne to construct Segment 5 of the trail have crafted Ballot Question 1 as a diversionary tactic to distract voters from the real question at hand: Do you support completion of the Blue River Trail as a top-quality multi-use trail that fully connects Silverthorne with the rest of the county trail system?

If you support completion of the Blue River Trail as an asset for current and future residents, it is imperative that you vote “no” on Ballot Question 1. Election Day is Tuesday, Aug. 14.
