I am in favor of the resort plan and concept. I own property in the area and feel it would be a great addition to the community, region and state. It's a shame to me that the local bureaucrats are making the developer and their team jump through hoop after hoop when their minds are already made up. Do what is best for the community. It once was a ski resort, it should remain a ski resort and to survive today ski resorts require modern amenities such as residences and condos. It's commonsense and the land isn't that pristine. So get off your high horses and let's help the developer be successful.
