Downtown URA plan gets strong support from local business community 22.1.2015 Steamboat Pilot
The Steamboat Springs City Council made it clear Tuesday night that it wants to soon invest in some major improvements like sidewalks and lighting in downtown Steamboat. But before the council moves forward with any significant investment or advance a plan from the city to use tax increment financing to fund as much as $12 million worth of projects, it wants some more time to scrub the list of potential improvements and explore a wider range of funding options for them. The council expects to resume the dialogue about downtown investment options in March. The council's resolve to invest in downtown came at the end of a two-hour-long discussion about a potential urban renewal authority in the downtown commercial district. "As a caretaker of that asset, you have to make investments into your asset," council President Bart Kounovsky said as he expressed support for investing in downtown Steamboat. "You have to, otherwise it will wither and die." He said discussions about improving downtown have been driven ...

Our View: To invest in solar energy or not? 24.9.2014 Steamboat Pilot
Last week, the Steamboat Today r eported on the Routt County commissioners' hesitation to invest in the community solar garden that is being constructed in Craig, and that response by the commission left us a little mystified. It’s perplexing that Routt County, which successfully operates one of the largest solar arrays in the region on the top of the Routt County Justice Center, is reluctant to buy into a similar project on a smaller scale knowing how much money it has saved by investing in solar. According to County Facilities Director Tim Winter, the county paid $8 per watt for solar panels on the Justice Center seven years ago and has since recouped $60,000 in renewable energy credits and $24,000 in reduced energy bills. The pre-construction cost currently being quoted by Clean Energy Collective is as low as $2.75 per watt, so in simple terms, any investment the county makes in the solar garden will more than pay for itself and seems like a wise investment. We appreciate the county’s desire to ...

Routt County commissioners hesitate to invest public monies in community solar garden 16.9.2014 Steamboat Pilot
The Routt County commissioners placed an emphasis on the goal of transitioning to “future energy economies” in their recent strategic planning process, and they already oversee a significant solar array on top of the Justice Center on the west side of Steamboat Springs. But they weren’t ready on Monday to tell Facilities Director Tim Winter to continue to explore investing in the new community solar garden that Clean Energy Collective is planning to begin constructing next month in Craig in collaboration with Yampa Valley Electric Association. CEC is a for-profit company that has built similar community solar arrays in Colorado mountain towns. The company allows individual households to spend as little as $850 on a small portion of the larger solar facility, in order to offset a portion (or all) of their electricity usage without having to invest thousands of dollars to put their own grid on top of their homes. The solar garden offers the added benefit of being ideally situated on its planned site for ...
