County to consider Homestead deal

Daily staff report
Vail CO Colorado

EAGLE COUNTY, Colorado – On Tuesday, the Eagle County Board of Commissioners will consider approval of a memorandum of understanding with the Homestead Owners Association regarding the East Lake Creek Ranch property, located between the Homestead and Creamery Ranch subdivisions in Edwards. The meeting will take place at 9 a.m. June 14 in the Eagle County Room, at 500 Broadway in Eagle.

If approved, the document would provide a framework for developing formal agreements that will preserve the East Lake Creek Ranch and portions of Homestead property, accommodate public use of the ranch consistent with the county’s open space goals and objectives, further conserve and grant public access across portions of Homestead land, and provide for maintenance of and improvements to the East Lake Creek Ranch property and any public access easements. Future agreements will be required, including access easements, conservation easements and maintenance agreements.

Eagle County entered into a purchase agreement for the 160-acre East Lake Creek Ranch property in February. The contract is for $3.25 million and provides a condition for obtaining a recommendation from the Open Space Advisory Committee for funding through the county’s dedicated Open Space Fund, as well as fundraising by the Eagle Valley Land Trust. The purchase agreement sets the closing for late summer.
