Minturn: Ginn’s ski resort wins big
May 20, 2008
MINTURN, Colorado ” Minturn voters went gaga over Ginn Tuesday.
Voters overwhelmingly approved annexing land owned by developer Bobby Ginn into the town so he can build a private ski-and-golf resort on Battle Mountain.
With nearly half of the town’s 756 registered voters casting ballots, 87 percent voted ‘yes.’
The vote clears the way for the town and Ginn to continue working out details of the development, which would include 1,700 homes, a private ski area and a golf course.
