What is our City doing? By the Original Keith Baker
2B money is already making the pool more of an attraction again (new east side roof and a face lift for the locker rooms). Perhaps next year will bring more for the best hot water in the state. A new handy dandy machine for significantly increasing the amount of feet of trails that can be completed has already proven its worth.
Also in the process of completion is the City and County services building in the old D&RG hospital. This is going to make these offices much more user friendly.
On the drawing for the near future is the replacement the hot line from Poncha Springs to the pool (provided the easement issue is settled). A trail on the north side of the Arkansas river is being negotiated with the railroad and may happen. Building projects on the Vandaveer ranch are being looked at and hopefully will get the ball rolling.
Enough for now. Maybe when my turn comes again next month I will talk more on these subjects.
