We have lived in the rural area west of Mitchell for over 35 years and have never had a problem getting in and out of our area to Monument or the new Monument Marketplace and see absolutely no reason why the town should take away Mrs Ward's land to accommodate the chaotic growth that is taking place in the Tri-Lakes area with no concern for any of us who have lived in the area for years. If the developer for Willow Springs cannot provide the infrastructure for his own development without destroying someone else's land and life, then the land should not be developed. Why should we have to pay the price for some developer who seems to have no concern for the people who have lived here for years and love our land and want to leave it as natural as possible. Let the developer provide a road to Baptist Road through his own land and not someone else's. It is kind of ridiculous for the mayor of Monument to say it is best that
Mitchell goes through to Baptist Road for the safety and benefit for all of us. As I said, we have lived in the area west of the disputed area,for over 35 years and have found it no problem to use Mitchell the way it is. All of this seems to be for the benefit of the developer only. Let him flip the bill for a road through his own land!!!!!

But progress is so important. Just ask the mayor's office on how many more big box stores they can cram into Monument. It looks like a slum now. BTW, did you know that Walmart and Home Depot received massive tax breaks from Monument for 5 years! And you Joe Blow the taxpayer is sucking it up. But heck they gave you $6/hr jobs in return right? lol, you dummies.

Now now.......... If the developer put the road on his own land, that would take away land from houses he could put there. More houses means more taxes to the city and state.

Oh, you didn't know??????????


It's the root cause of the emminent domain laws..........

Just follow the money trail..........
