Friends of Lower Blue plan meeting

Jane Reuter

SILVERTHORNE – The Friends of the Lower Blue will hold its first organizational meeting at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday at the Silverthorne library.

Friends of the Lower Blue is a group of about 100 people, virtually all of them Lower Blue home or property owners. Its mission statement is to guide the future of the area, which extends from Silverthorne north to the Grand County line.

The group was established last fall, and its charter committee is now seeking to further define the group’s long-range goals. Group members hope to establish Wednesday a working board and other committees.

To date, the group has focused on supporting the Lower Blue Master Plan and ensuring that adopted land use plans are appropriately implemented.

An earlier letter from Friends of the Lower Blue says the group believes the area’s rural character should be preserved, that it is not generally an appropriate area for commercial development and that its “unique environmental conditions” should always be considered.

Wednesday’s meeting is expected to last about 90 minutes. Drinks and snacks will be served.
