Green Ranch project calls it quits

EAGLE COUNTY – Developer Fred Green has withdrawn his request to build 22 homes on his property on Lake Creek Road. Green, who owns the 28-acre piece of property he wants to build on, has run into significant opposition from neighbors who say his project would change the rural character of the Lake Creek Valley. The valley, which lies on either side of Lake Creek Road, consists of longtime ranches, widely spaced homes and some exclusive neighborhoods. The valley is home to East and West Lake Creek trails, two popular hiking areas. His project also has had trouble getting support from Board of County Commissioners, too. Green asked the board to put his project on hold when they first considered it in April, after it looked like the board was going to deny it. It has been on hold since then and on Monday he withdrew the request, said acting County Administrator Keith Montag. Vail, Colorado
