Breckenridge forests get a break

Red, White & Blue wild-land workers will start taking out brush and trees in Highlands Park, above Discovery Hill in Breckenridge. They picked that area because of its high risk and the fact that it backs to national forest. The money comes from a $90,000 federal grant, as well as some kick-ins by the Highlands Park Housing Association. The project will cost about $20,000 to remove trees, which will slowly and safely be burned, in the 5 acres. Other fire mitigation projects will continue near the Upper Blue Valley. In addition, lawmakers are looking at setting aside $5.5 million to clear more trees, recycle beetle kill and create wildfire plans throughout Colorado. The U.S. Forest Service also hopes to dole out $26 million throughout the Rocky Mountains to deal with the problem. Local authorities say that approximately 8,600 acres need to be thinned. The cost is averages $1,250 an acre, but reduced fuel costs are a plus for the cause.

A new development in a floodplain

With the shrinking amount of available private land in Summit County, developers are looking at unconventional areas. Silverthorne town council gave its initial approval to Silver Trout Estates, which is a proposed development on 12 acres between the private fishing lake in Eagle’s Nest and the Blue River in Silverthorne. It would be made up of 14 duplexes and a triplet, marketed to second-home owners, and priced beginning in the $900,000. The high price comes because there isn’t much riverfront property left in Silverthorne. The land is located in the 100-year floodplain, so builders will have to fill in the area with at least one foot of dirt. Even so, if the 100-year flood occurred, the homes would see water. There’s a 1% chance a flood will happen in any given year. Now the Federal Emergency Management Agency needs to approve the plan, and developers need to show impacts on the surrounding wetland.
