Letter to the editor: Double standard by town

Posted

It appears the Town of Parker operates under a double standard when it comes to approval of development. They have filed suit against a proposed development outside the town limits in an area, the mayor states, is the wrong place for this type of development. A concern of lowering property values and traffic issues are also issues against this development.

Last month, the town approved a development inside the town’s boundaries that opposition voiced the same concerns as the town is doing in their lawsuit, only to fall on deaf ears. Not fitting into the town’s master plan, as the mayor contends, lowering property values, traffic and safety concerns are the same issues raised by homeowners only to be denied by the town.

Is it because the town will not receive any revenue from the development outside town limits as they will for the development they approved? Is the town using funds generated from the recently approved development to pay for lawsuit and attorney fees? Taxpayers are getting fed up with the political structure speaking out of both sides of their mouths. When is the town going to be consistent in applying their master plan and not work under a double standard?
