Example text for public comment opposing TARS
KMOHR is not currently taking a position on TARS. We believe that the adjoining HOAs and residents are best equipped to form and promote their opposing positions. In talking with these HOAs, we understand that they are opposed. As such, we are sharing the following examples to help public commenters craft comments for submitting to Eagle County. We do not recommend using the examples verbatim. You should tailor them to reflect your own thoughts. If the county sees duplicated public comments, the comments might not be taken seriously.
