Clarifying my comments
My comments to the Avon Town Council were not as accurately reported by Matt Terrell as I would liked.
I stated that I felt it was important to form the Urban Renewal Authority to act as a guard over the inevitable developments that are pending and to add additional controls and authority to the Council and Planning and Zoning Commission powers in approving a development.
Further, that the Authority would allow forming policies and procedures for assisting displaced business owners.
In conclusion, I stated that while it may seem difficult to find our community a blight by inner city standards, we do not want to wait until it in fact does resemble the inner city.

Doctors On Call
They’re coming back
The Eagle Valley Chamber of Commerce recently welcomed the Rocky Mountain Horse Expo (June 1, 2, 3) to our area. They fully utilized the entire Eagle County Fairgrounds with a variety of events including seminars and speakers, Craig Cameron’s extreme cowboy race, and we were proud to host the Working Ranch Cowboys Association’s championship rodeo. More than 200 vendors took advantage of the new Eagle River Center indoor facility and all were very pleased with its design and use.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank Eagle County government and their fantastic fairgrounds staff for their tireless efforts to make this event an overwhelming success. Some other sponsors that deserve an outstanding applause are CenturyTel for setting up the Eagle River Center with WiFi, Signature Signs for their incredible banners and installation help, Vail Resorts, Inc. for their continued support of these community events, Silver Leaf Suites for being the host hotel, High Point Brewery for their support of our beer oasis, KZYR for their partnership in radio coverage, and last but not least the Greater Eagle Fire Protection District for their continued support in making sure that everyone is safe.
The success of this event has prompted the promoter to say that they will be back again next year and for many years to come. The Eagle Valley Chamber of Commerce looks forward to the return of this event and will continue to search for events such as this one that highlight our western heritage and our small-town charm.
Many thanks once again to everyone who attended and helped make this event a success.
