OK. I will be the echo. We do need sensible development of retail in Longmont.
Before going to a laundry list of needs, I would like to congratulate Longmont's leaders in the good job that we have seen. The Highway 119 corridor is location to many new shopping opportunities. Downtown has lost a few business to the recession, but it seems to be thriving. I enjoyed receiving the Art Enthusiast publication last week. The downtown is a delightful place to relax with a coffee or beer and take in one of the glorious sunsets here. The restaurants are to die for. And there are entertainment opportunities, too. Tours, theater, music and more make Longmont's Main Street a great place to frequent.
Continued development will occur along main corridors of Longmont. I hope the city plans for sensible traffic flow. One of the great things I like to brag about here is its traffic moves well. You can expect to encounter severe congestion in well-traveled main arteries during rush hour. But having lived in other suburban areas, I can say Longmont has done an excellent job.
At some point, train traffic will have to be addressed. Maybe the answer is in moving tracks farther east. Mass transit would greatly enhance this area as more high tech and aerospace move here.
Please address Twin Peaks for all the reasons others have cited. We can do better.
