12. The Hogan-Pancost property, a 22 acre parcel along South Boulder Creek that contains numerous wetlands, has once again been proposed for annexation and a residential development of 117 dwelling units. Do you think it should be annexed and developed as proposed? Annexed and developed in some different manner than proposed? Not annexed? Why?
We are talking about the lesser of two evils here with coal and natural gas. Coal drives massive carbon dioxide emissions while natural gas drives methane emissions. Public preference is driven by extraction, and currently fracking is the model for natural gas. I do not support fracking as it is unregulated and environmentally damaging. We will need a mix of fossil fuels to bridge the gap until renewable energy and storage solutions fully mature.
