11. The plan for the bike trail on the west side of US 36 north of Lee Hill Road on ecologically sensitive Open Space property was approved by the City Council on the condition that it carefully limit any negative impacts to the eco-systems there. How would you assure yourself and the public that the trail does not create such negative impacts?

I understand that living in a college town will drive the percentage of rental properties higher than other communities. However Boulder has reached a point where outside buyers see a good investment and purchase homes and condos to turn them into rental units for the long term. This puts a strain on members of the community who are trying to live where they work, as they are at the mercy of the rental property owner and market rental rates. Without hope for owning a home money that could become equity goes to rental property owners and property management companies. While every community needs a good balance of rental units and homeowners I would like to see more homeowners in our community.
