Without those wretched overhead powerlines...

...the people of Manitou would have to watch TV in the dark.

Don, burying those darned powerlines should be a top priority ...

If I was a leader in the community in Manitou (and don't worry, I'm not moving back and running for office), burying those powerlines would be one of my top priorities. Overhead powerlines are eyesores, and they obstruct the views of the mountains. Burying them would be such a boast to real estate prices, quality of life and all that, and only create more positive momentum for the great changes happening in town.

Now I do realize it costs money to do this and it'll be hard work just to make that happen in the downtown business district area, but geez, we need some vision here. Bury those damn powerlines ... EVERYWHERE ... I say!

Find a way to fund it. Give financial incentives. Beg the tycoons to donate who love Manitou. Ask El Pomar. Do something!

Anyway, that's my two cents.

    I agree

    When I found recent photos of Manitou Springs online, many weren't very complimentary what with chain-link fences, big ugly signs, and then telephone poles and overhead wires topping it off.

    (Are there no signage regulations in Manitou? That's a painless thing that make an impact immediately as businesses open. Then phase in existing businesses over time on a schedule or when the property changes owners.)

    Burying the lines would have made for a great stimulus package project for Manitou: jobs, restoring vistas, and improving the safety of the electrical grid and utility workers - it still snows heavily there at times, no? In-ground wiring ducts would keep utility workers down from tall ladders and out of clunky buckets. That's a win-win-win situation.
