Get involved with Copper PUD

The Ten Mile Planning Commission (TMPC) just completed two work sessions inviting input from Copper Mountain residents, homeowners and other stakeholders regarding Intrawest’s proposed master development plan. As a condominium owner at Copper since the mid 1980s, I applaud both TMPC and Intrawest for welcoming participation and input of homeowners, Copper businesses, employees, neighbors and anyone else with a stake in promoting responsible growth in Summit County. Clearly, there are many complex issues involved, but my impression is that Intrawest will thoughtfully consider the input from these work sessions when finalizing its Plan.The approval of a Plan by TMPC and the Board of County Commissioners will benefit Copper and the County. This includes those full-time Copper residents and employees, those who own second homes at Copper, seasonal employees and those who visit from the Denver area or out of state and County residents. Each of us has an opinion about “The Ideal Plan” so we must provide dialogue and feedback, which Intrawest is seeking to better understand other perspectives. However, compromise will be needed from all parties in order to achieve the best Plan for the Copper community.Future work sessions, if they continue to be conducted in an open and conscientious manner as they have been thus far, will ultimately lead to a balanced development Plan that will provide a better Copper Mountain for all current and future stakeholders, as well as the whole county. I encourage my fellow citizens to stay engaged in this process.Editor’s Note: Today, the Board of County Commissioners are scheduled to conduct a work session in the BOCC Hearing Room at the County Courthouse in Breckenridge regarding the Copper Mountain PUD Modification. The work session was originally scheduled to begin at 9:30 a.m. but due to scheduling conflicts will start at 10 a.m. in the BOCC Hearing Room at the County Courthouse located at 208 E. Lincoln in Breckenridge.
