Letter — Nailing home wildlife points

I am responding to Mr. Hedley’s recent letter entitled “Property Value Hurt by Bears.” I’m familiar with Mr. Hedley’s views on wildlife, the environment, and his property sales. Many factors effect property values, including noisy vacation rentals in the single family neighborhoods, blight that is allowed to perpetuate, the job market on the hill, and the average family being priced right out of the housing market. Perhaps this doesn’t concern Mr. Hedley, but it does concern most of the community. Mr. Hedley, perhaps you can better advise your clients on where to build their spec houses so they won’t annoy the neighborhoods with their complaints, and you would be helping the environment if you would remove the large nails and several real estate signs you have pounded into living trees off of Cold Creek Trail and at the corner of Cherry Hills Circle and Elks Club Drive. Regardless of where these living trees are located they should be protected, and are not for the purpose of advertising your properties for sale at Aspen Realty.
