On the trails, a chaotic situation 30.6.2009 Telluride: Opinions
MV Mayor Bob Delves Today was a good day for this hiker on the Village Trail in Mountain Village. Of the 10 mountain bikers I encountered, eight clearly understood that they were on a multi-use trail (hikers, bikers, horses), and that the International Mountain Biking Association (IMBA) has very clear Rules of the Trail that all bikers should follow. These eight bikers all gave me warning of their approach. When I could not yield trail, they stopped, dismounted, yielded trail and let me pass. When I could yield trail (although it is always the biker’s responsibility to yield trail to hikers and horses), they slowed to a very slow speed and passed me carefully and courteously.

Architect Michael Tavel and the Subdivision of the Future 10.4.2009 NewWest.Net All Headlines
Michael Tavel gerw up in Ohio and Colorado, and after training as an architect at UC Berkeley (and getting the chance to work with the now-famous new urbanism planner Peter Calthorpe), he returned to Denver as an architecture professor in 1991. His focus was the integration of town planning and the natural environment - something that seems like it should happen as a matter of course, but usually does not.
