You could have seen this coming. Take a struggling economy, mix in local businesses whose owners are fighting to stay afloat, add a $3.5 million Streetscape project that would be generously funded by the very same business owners, and opposition flows freely.
The Streetscape Committee recommended Wednesday afternoon to Ridgway Town Council to postpone placing the project in front of Ridgway voters on the April 2013 ballot. Reworking and retooling the project, whether by using other financing means and methods and/or scaling the project back are all options for review. Could a November 2013 vote be on the horizon? Perhaps.
