More ideas for 2016


When we asked readers to share their ideas for the changes they wanted to see in Pagosa Springs during 2016, we were flooded with input. The following is a continuation of last week’s list of suggestions.

“I would love, love to see our CDOT figure out a better system for traffic control,” said Patty Sanner.

On that note, Amber Landacre wants, “The turn lane put back in to turn into the elementary school on 10th Street.” Elain Reeves agreed with that one.

Kim Collins added that she would love to see decent roads.

Elizabeth Brown shared, “I’d like to see more events on the calendar for tourists. I had some friends coming up for the last two weeks of December, and looking at the calendar, I saw the recent theatrical event going on and a Christian Writers workshop, both very good events to have, but it would be nice to have a sort of introduction to Pagosa in the events line-up. So many great things to see and do here.”

Kirsten Daffron wants to have a high school fly fishing and ski team.

DawnMarie Gonzales suggested a water park.

Amanda Breman added, “More places for families and preteens/teens. Like a Jumpstreet/Sky Zone, bowling or rec center that anybody can go to, not just property owners. Go karts … some other places to go do things with their friends.”

“I would love to see more activities for the kids too. Not just recreational, but volunteer opportunities and apprenticeships with the local artists. Get them thinking about more than what’s going on in the next five minutes,” shared Lacy Capre.
