Vail Daily letter: Great open space project

Vail, CO Colorado

Dear Eagle County commissioners,

As residents of Homestead, we want to thank you for supporting the purchase and protection of the Scudder Webster parcel that has provided us a beautiful – albeit tentative – respite from the busy town of Edwards.

Those of us who have lived here a while have been very concerned as to the future of this beautiful open space.

We hike, bike and snowshoe, what is widely known around here as “the loop” all year round. It has been our distinct pleasure to just enjoy the view, as well. The thought of it being developed has concerned us greatly through the years.

But now, your vision, coupled with an incredibly affordable opportunity, allows it to remain open and publicly accessible for all time. What an amazing gift! Please know that we entirely support the preservation of this beautiful property and look forward to sharing it with all the residents of Eagle County.

This project exemplifies exactly why we supported paying a portion of our property tax bills to acquire and protect open space. We are completely supportive, and commend your vision to include this, and other open space buffers between communities in Eagle County. Such planning is critical to our quality of life, and enhances the experience of all who live and play in Edwards.
