Denver Post Guest Editorial: Protecting Golden From the Beltway

I’ve got an online guest editorial in today’s Denver Post on our effort to protect Golden from the beltway.  The punch line is the same point I’ve been making for a while: we have been and remain fiercely opposed to the beltway, which is a 1950s-style transportation answer that will neither improve transportation in northwest Denver Metro nor protect our region’s considerable open space, scenic view, and wildlife habitat qualities.  But the proponents are close to going to the private market for funding for their more modest Jefferson Parkway proposal, and Golden has to choose between imperfect strategies.
