Q&A with Dillon mayoral candidate Carolyn Skowyra

Do you think Ice Castles should return to Dillon?

I am open to further negotiations with Ice Castles. At this time, we have not been able to determine a site that is a suitable footprint for the event.

Do you support the direction the town is headed on short-term rental regulations?

Yes, the council has taken a conservative approach to implementing any short-term rental regulations. All regulations, both the initial application and the more recent changes, were discussed openly with and came directly from the community.

What should the town do about the stalled Uptown 240 development?

The town staff and many iterations of council have worked with the Uptown 240 developers to help shape the project into something that we think will be a great addition to the town. The town, however, is not involved in financing this project. While we have offered assistance to the extent that we are capable, ultimately we are not in a place to affect any immediate changes in the status of construction. We believe the best outcome for all parties is to see the project completed. In the event of continued delay, we have negotiated stronger deadlines in the most recent amendment to the development agreement.

What do you think about plans to introduce paid overnight parking?

As you may guess, based on the yearslong timeline of this issue, the conversation doesn’t sit lightly with council. We understand that there are many moving parts when discussing paid overnight parking. We have a problem with historically under-parked condo buildings and a historic leniency allowing anyone to park overnight at any time. We are continuing to look at the feasibility of an assortment of parking solutions for the town core.

How would you work to implement Town Park improvements that have been delayed?

Town Park improvements are slated to begin this summer.
