Put Colorado Mountain College on the 9.4-acre parcel, not boxes

As a one member of this community, I realize I do not speak for all, nor do I reflect the views of all the community. However, there are many who do share my views.The people of this community have come to your work sessions and abided by your rules regarding input on the direction this town should take regarding development of the 9.4-acre parcel. We put our faith and trust in you, as our leaders, to do what is right for the community, bearing in mind as well, what the community wants for itself. Based upon the results of these polls regarding the 9.4-acre parcel, new retail and so-called big-box or junior big-box retail was never at the top of any of those lists.The people of this community have voiced their opinions to reflect a desire for open space, recreation, education and community mulituse of that space to be more important than retail of the nature we are now contesting.The people of this town would like to see our Main Street and current surrounding retail areas revitalized and refurbished. Please give our existing retail establishments a fighting chance to survive. Support them and provide them incentives to keep their businesses in our town.If they leave, so do their families and the support they provide to this community. The local businesses keep their support and money in this town, where their livelihoods are; where their families live, where their hearts are.We ask you to promote no further new retail be established outside our existing perimeters. We also ask you to work with Colorado Mountain College to establish its new campus in our town. We believe education to be a more sustainable resource that will provide a positive effect on Frisco.In closing, we ask that you reconsider your stance on retail development, or give the community as a whole, a valid chance to vote on this issue.
