Linda Clem: Truths about the Keystone Parkway plan

Linda Clem

• It is not a “beautification tax.” It is about more than flowers. It is about safety, water conservation and year-round appearance.

• The beneficiaries of the PID are the residents of the Keystone community, whether you live in the Ranch, Loveland Pass Village or along the Highway 6 corridor. It is your front door. You pass it every time you leave or enter Keystone. And so do your guests. And if it also benefits Keystone/Vail Resorts, then it also benefits you. Public improvements equal private gains.

• The improvements are designed to be year round. They might be modular and therefore exchangeable with the seasons, and adaptable to the economy. A concept, courtesy of Neils Lunceford, has been available for a couple of weeks and is on the website

• The current economy is allowing the concept for the PID to potentially come in at 20-50 percent under bid. Pass the PID and the school levy in November and your taxes will go down!

Vote “yes” on 1A, 1B and 1C for an improved Keystone community.
