I live in eastern Boulder near the Hogan-Pancost property. For 25 years I protested its development, initially because of lifestyle issues. When strolling through the neighborhood and the vacant HP parcel with the ditch running through, wildflowers growing and horses grazing, I feel like I am in the country.
Obviously, lifestyle is no longer a concern of the city.
What drew a lot of us to Boulder is now considered nonessential compared to the apparent need for growth and development. I realize that my former desire to keep HP vacant holds no water anymore with the city and county.
