Municipalities Matter

Long_Winding_RoadLast week, my colleague, Mark Radtke, and I drove to Chicago … and we didn’t even leave Colorado. We came close to a thousand mile journey with our leg of CML’s spring outreach meetings. We started in Limon and ended in Avon. Let me assure you it wasn’t straight across I-70.

We traveled across the Eastern Plains, around the Lower Arkansas Valley, across La Veta Pass and into the San Luis Valley, up and over Wolf Creek Pass and into the Animas Valley, then up and down Red Mountain, Molas, and Coal Bank Passes (XMAS in May, and that is another story) through to the Capitol of the Grand Valley, Grand Junction, and finally to the heart of the Vail Valley, Avon.

We listened to many great stories of cooperation and solving problems. For example, there are a number of MOUs being written between Crestone, Moffat, and work with Saguache for all sorts of public improvements. A great many new infrastructure projects are being built, including parks, trails, and even a whitewater park connected with a wastewater plant in Durango (I think my hearing aids might have been acting up).

The bottom line is leadership in the municipal family is as tall as Pikes Peak and as majestic as the Colorado Monument. It is flourishing in cities and towns large and small.

You get a real sense of the energy and the spirit when you attend these meetings as I have been doing for a few years now. It is inspiring and energizing. Yes, it was a long and winding road, but a good trip and I am proud to work for great municipal officials. I never turn down an opportunity for a visit, so let me know when.


Great photo to go with your worthwhile words.

I also travel around the country. But unfortunately I am a student and I do not have enough money to travel in own car. I have a blog about travel hitchhiking, check out - case study writers.

We need to welcome that dealing with the consequences of direct is the most ideal approach to manage transform it. One approach to manage veneration yourself and acknowledge responsibility of your life is through the exhibit of appreciation. Rehearsing thankfulness develops mind. I consider my capacity to stir energy among men the best resource I have. The best approach to build up the best that is in a man is by gratefulness and support. Be verbal in recognizing your appreciation.
