I would be very happy with a new firehouse at El Rancho and a remodeled one at Lookout Mountain. I would like a new Alpine Rescue Building. “Zero cost?” No. In order to get these things, we would have to swallow a commercial blot. Another mini-mall across the street from a mini-mall, more lights, more noise and what looks like every other mini-mall in every city in the West. We can build these things without having to pay a prohibitive price.

As to the “Gateway,” we have one. It’s called the front range of the Rocky Mountains. Go up I-70 to exit 254 and you will see something that makes your heart rise at the top of the hill. Your hotel, gas station and burger place are nothing more than a bunch of buildings blocking the view.
