Proposed Projects 2017
#1 Forest Service Land Acquisition
Lower Parcel (Blue)
The riparian area is protected and will not be developed. The Forest Service is determined to sell this land to an entity that will protect the ecosystem.
Upper Parcel (Red)
We have yet to hear of any interest in the purchase of this parcel. Attached to the purchase and potential development of this land is a large price tag involving an intersection traffic improvement. The Valley Rd intersection is nearly at its tipping point according to Eagle County, who states the remodel is “between 3-4 million.” Eagle County does not have any plans to put money into this remodel. As it stands, a developer who purchased this land, would be responsible for the cost of the intersection.
Upper Parcel (Green)
This parcel is roughly 9-10 acres and is flat. Crown is interested in purchasing this land for future indoor and outdoor facilities. We are currently waiting on a grant to conduct a master plan of the park. If we get the grant we would like to include that parcel in the master plan process so we can better understand the community’s needs. We are looking at the feasibility of a fieldhouse that is profitable and serves the largest user base possible. In order to do that we would need additional partnerships. We are currently seeking a variety of different avenues to purchase the land. A couple options include, grant funding, private donations, mill levy increase, and public or private partnerships.
#2 South Park Renovation
Project entails landscaping the BMX track. Clay lining the pond and putting in a sand beach. Adding a diverse species of plants and trees.
#3 Xtra grass in goal mouths
We will be installing two U14 field goal mouths with Xtra grass, which is artificial turf mixed with real grass. This project was funded through the Colorado Soccer Association and should eliminate goal mouth wear and tear.
If you are interested in being on a committee for fundraising for any of these projects, or have an idea for our community park – please email the Executive Director at firstname.lastname@example.org
