County info and contact information

Say “Summit County,” and the towns of Breckenridge, Keystone, Frisco and Silverthorne most likely come to mind.

But most people live in the surrounding hillsides, in homes tucked into the forests ” and outside town boundaries.

Summit County comprises some 600 square miles, most of which is owned by the U.S. Forest Service. County Commissioners ” Gary Lindstrom, Tom Long and Bill Wallace ” are responsible for making sure county government works like clockwork, particularly when it comes to the basic requirements of the community, such as roads, transit, water and sewer.

But Summit County is known throughout the state as being proactive ” always looking ahead and anticipating the future needs of its citizens and guests. So in recent years, county government has come to encompass such popular projects as open space and trails, noxious weeds and the newly constructed Summit County Community and Senior Center.

The workload of the future doesn’t look to be any lighter; commissioners often discuss the possibility of a full-fledged hospital, nursing center and recreation district. The demands, too, must be weighed against the demands to keep growth in control and maintain the rural character for which the area is known.
