Town Proceeds With Purchase Of Open Space At Kiowa Ridge
By: Kate Rusch – Public Information Officer
The Town of Estes Park will move forward with a contract to purchase two parcels of land in the Kiowa Ridge subdivision at the southern edge of town. One parcel is occupied by a Town-owned water distribution tank. The other parcel is 7.96 acres of open space and wetlands along CO Highway 7. The Town Board initially approved the purchases for $50,000 in May of this year. The purchase was halted in June due to unforeseen issues with the title, which have now been resolved.
The Town is purchasing the water tank parcel so that it could make security improvements. On the open space parcel along Highway 7, the Town intends to improve the area for safe wildlife viewing and eventually use a portion of the land to expand the trail system in the Estes Valley.
