Cassidy: Time to take on traffic, Breckenridge (letter)

Morgan Liddick lives in Summit County. His column appears in every Tuesday in the Summit Daily News. |

Being a resident of Breckenridge, for the past 5 years, I have seen this town go through some good and not so good changes. Visitors/tourists coming into town has increased. Let’s not forget about the lack of parking … it has become so insane!

This town needs to get its act together! For starters, whenever there is an event in town, traffic and parking becomes horrendous. People are parking any and everywhere they damn well please. A perfect example was Saturday, when every mother and their son was in town for the snow sculptures exhibit. Traffic was backed up in all directions, town was congested and there was not a law-enforcement officer to be seen in town controlling this ongoing issue.

Instead of paying money out to some parking/traffic statistics idiot, get the bulldozers rolling and build a parking garage, and why not top it off with seasonal employee housing? Too much talk and no action is being taken by the town council members, whom I voted for and believed in.

If we want this town to embrace visitors and keep the locals happy — while enjoying all that Breckenridge has to offer — you need to step up your game!!
