Dear Editor: I attended a Ouray City Council workshop last week involving the Waterview affordable housing project. It seems the developer now has requested to (not) pave the street in this subdivision. This did not sit well with the council and they pushed back on the developer that he had this in his proposal. The city wants the street paved. Awesome — now the developer has brought a spreadsheet showing infrastructure costs of $2.8 million, including water lines, sewer, etc., and that the Department of Local Affairs has put $1 million in the pot. This leaves $1.8 million — this seems very high for a 9-acre parcel.
