Letter to the editor: Let’s support our Silverthorne businesses affected by construction

Carol and Ken Vagnini

As Silverthorne residents, we greatly appreciate the “Businesses are Open” sign on the Blue River Parkway.

While it is extremely difficult to see the signs at times with the construction vehicles, the sign does help somewhat. 

What we do hope is that customers continue to support the Minimal Impact and Alpine Gardens shops whose entrance is right in the middle of construction. Also, we wonder: Is there any possibility of a tax relief or other assistance to compensate these local business owners for the challenges they are experiencing?

We want our local businesses to thrive, and this, we imagine, is a particularly difficult time! 

Thank you to the workers along the parkway! Your work is appreciated!
