Steamboat Springs Plans for the Future
I am continually impressed with how the Steamboat Springs community plans for the future and thinks long-term. I was reading the Steamboat Today this morning and saw that the City of Steamboat was evaluating what to do with the 1% lodging tax they collect. Annually, this tax generates between $650,000 and $800,000. What was interesting to me was how progressive and well, just neat, that my neighbors have voted in this tax and attempt to use it wisely. The projects that are up for consideration are all projects that will greatly benefit our town. And these aren’t just infrastructure or boring things like that. These projects will directly benefit the locals and visitors alike for the long-term.
