Megan Walker: Clearing the air 28.2.2015 Steamboat Pilot
Colorado’s Renewable Energy Standard urgently needs your support. Over a decade ago, voters made Colorado a clean energy leader by enacting the renewable energy standard at the ballot box. Today, 29 states and the District of Columbia have RESs. Since the 2004 ballot initiative, Colorado has expanded its RES in scope and strength through multiple additions while providing economic resilience and job opportunities across the state. Some utilities have already met or exceeded their RES ahead of schedule while providing a cost benefit to consumers. Despite these many successes, the RES is again under attack. Senate Bill 44 that would cut the RES in half was passed by the Senate, and it is now on its way to the House. While cheap and plentiful fossil fuels have helped to shape the modern world, it is wise to consider the implications of a narrow focus on these finite resources. The potential for price shocks and supply constraints leaves Coloradoans vulnerable, while a diversification of Colorado’s energy ...

Chadwick Flats introduces green, multi-unit horizontal living to Steamboat 15.2.2015 Steamboat Pilot
A new three-unit residential development near the base of Steamboat Ski Area will offer private, single-level floor plans stacked atop each other, a design yet to be seen in Steamboat. Chadwick Flats will use the grade of the lot’s hillside, allowing each residence to have comparable views and window utilization and attached, private, two-car garages. The design is new for Routt County and for developer Garrett Simon of Meriwether Companies, who said the project was born following conversations with local real estate broker Chris Paoli from The Paoli Group of Colorado Group Realty. Simon said the growing number of baby boomers in Steamboat aren't keen on trekking up multiple flights of stairs from garages and into townhomes or multi-level condo complexes. Paoli said that while considering the last round of development in Steamboat, he wanted to find a way to maximize living space for buyers and density for the developers. The flats concept allows for maximum living space by removing stair corridors, and ...
