As a Ketchum resident, I am frustrated that the Bluebird project is not going up for a vote. People should be aware that GMD Development headed by Mr. Dunfield have been actively pursuing a project like Bluebird for over a decade. They first started at the site where the new fire station …

Gwen Raney commented on Trade Bluebird site for Bariteau lot

As for a land swap, the City can't dispose of land they no longer want through a land swap, land must be auctioned off to the higher bidder. There is no doubt that the land where Bluebird is proposed is very valuable and but get a very high price in the present market for it. Also, the Ci…

I am not sure how much credibility Mr. Hoffman has when it comes to low income housing, his tailer parks on the highway do not appear, safe or reasonably habitable. The idea of him making better use of this land for community housing is a very good one.

This hotel has been a disaster for Ketchum from the beginning. The size and scope of the project has never “fit” the site and can only be built through waivers. The P and Z, Mayor and City Council do not deserve the trust of tax paying residents if this project goes forward and simply ill…

I am in full agreement with those who have posted comments related to Mr. Bariteau’s hole in the ground at the entrance to our town. This is a long over due embarrassment to our town and the visitors we encourage here. People shake their heads and wonder why our City governance is so perm…
