To All Those Who Respect And Cherish Wildlife In The Estes Valley


Elk, black bear, bobcat, mountain lion, raccoon and smaller creatures consistently use the 5.8 acres along Highway 7 across form Eagle’s Landing, Eagle View, the golf course entrance road and other condos.

A builder wants to put 41 condos on this acreage…Lot 22. He submitted a conservation plan in accordance with the Code 7.8. The Colorado Division of Wildlife, when asked for their review, three times, told the Planning Commission and the Estes Park Board of Trustees that there would still be a negative and significant impact on this proven wildlife habitat.

In spite of CDOW documented concerns, the Planning Commission gave approval to the builder on a vote of 5-2. Mindful of this and the fact that we have approximately 350-400 condos and homes for sale in the Estes Valley. An appeal has been made to the Estes Park Board of Trustees. The appeal will be heard at the Board of Trustee meeting in the Town Hall beginning at 7:00 p.m. next  Tuesday, August 12, 2008.
The wild animals can’t speak for themselves, but you can! Please be there.

Thank you, Dick Coe
