Has anyone heard of the “82 or Bust” group? Who are they and why do they get to make rules such as no business flags or signs can be displayed on the side road of Highway 82 in Basalt without their permission? Who are they to say we can’t have a sale flag or sign up on the side road of Big-O Tires?
Businesses along 82 depend on passerby traffic for exposure and business growth, but if we can’t have any signs out how will people know we are here? The signs are not on 82 — they are on the side road. The Roaring Fork Valley needs business growth and I think these people are getting in the way. 82 or Bust? The group is a big bust altogether.
