Friday's Collegian article covering the new Centerra strip mall in Loveland showcases exactly what is wrong with Colorado's Front Range. Local city officials and out of state developers team up to pave the shrinking landscape with no regard to long term environmental, aesthetic and economic impact.
It is unspeakable how nearsighted and irresponsible both the developer and Loveland city officials are acting by building such an immense concrete monolith.
This new strip mall, along with the other new housing and commercial developments in the area, highlight the sad, obvious lack of concern for the long term detrimental effects they inevitably cause:
overcrowding, exhaustion of water supplies and the curse of future generations who can never see the land as it once was.
