Ski Towns: When did Cali get derailed? - Page 5

Oldgoat says: "Don't forget the Safeway--highest sales per sqft of any Safeway in the world I believe."

 

I dunno. The Girdwood Mercantile (America's smallest Safeway) makes the same claim.

And as I read about Colorado spilling down valley once again, I am not sure why people would be so down on California.

Depends on perspective.

 

The cut in house permit numbers by 2/3rds may push up house prices and therefore price local kids out of home ownership.

 

The small shop owner is pushed out of the resort by the resort's corporate shops

 

The resort plans to 'trap' timeshare owners in the 'car less' resort village so that local businesses don't get a slice of the tourism pie.

 

The employees are pushed out by largely unoccupied condos to satellite employee accom or the boondocks of town with a longer commute

 

Construction might shrink parking areas near the lifts

 

Social and Green engineers decide the locals can park at bus terminals .... so the Bay Area SUVs can park in their luxury condo's garage on the old parking lot.

 

Paid Parking is introduced in regions with less affluent local families wondering 'how can afford to ski'.

 

There's so many ripple effects and so many self-interested parties, including developers who get their money and leave the rest to deal with the consequences. Some will say things are 'derailed'.
