Helicopter to fly over Vail’s Timber Ridge

Daily staff report
Vail, CO Colorado

VAIL, Colorado – A helicopter will be in use for a brief time on Wednesday as part of the Timber Ridge redevelopment. The town is working with Vail Timber Ridge LLC to develop the easternmost portion of the property. As part of the development approval process, the project requires documentation and mitigation of rockfall hazards on the south-facing hillside above the site.-

The helicopter will be used to videotape and photograph the hillside. Area residents have been notified by the town of Wednesday’s mid-morning fly-over. The air operations will take less than an hour to complete. –

Community Development Director George Ruther says the aerial documentation was selected as the quickest and most cost-effective method for completing the study, which is being funded by the town and Vail Timber Ridge LLC.
