Dillon starts planning for its summer road work

DILLON – Before Dillon can tackle its Corinthian Hills summer road reconstruction project, it must complete work done last season on Tenderfoot Street and Gold Run Circle.

Town engineer Dan Burroughs said the town will be working on Gold Run Circle in April and May, Tenderfoot Street in May and June, and work on Corinthian Circle will span July through September. He hopes the whole project will be completed Oct. 1.

Dillon’s staff was unable to finish last year’s road project due to legal action taken by Yacht Club Condominiums over parking issues. After getting a temporary injunction on construction last past spring, the homeowner’s association couldn’t block the project (though it was delayed significantly), so instead they pursued legal action. The case went to court in January, but District Court Judge Terry Ruckriegle hasn’t announced his ruling yet.

The Yacht Club condo complex – located at the corner of Gold Run Circle and Tenderfoot Street – sued the Town of Dillon over the road redevelopment project they say has taken away much-needed parking spaces for the complex. Homeowners want to continue tandem parking their cars in the town right-of-way, and Dillon officials contend the practice is hazardous and illegal. Yacht Club also claims the project diminished the condo development’s property value by limiting its parking, making it difficult for owners to rent units and take out loans.

Burroughs said the town is working with the Corinthian Hills neighborhood to make sure the project goes smoothly.

“That’s always our goal,” he said.
