Breck approves density transfer to BOEC

Breckenridge town councilmembers approved a resolution on Tuesday to transfer density to the Breckenridge Outdoor Education Center that would assist with the nonprofit's capital improvement project. By the resolution, the town will authorize the use of 3,000 square feet of density for the project, which will help provide workforce housing for BOEC staff.

The density would be transferred from part of Cucumber Gulch and the Nordic Center parking lot to BOEC. According to the staff memo, the development permit was approved in May 2015, and is set to break ground in the fall.

BOEC launched their capital finance campaign last year, with the addition of staff housing to their headquarters as one of four primary goals. The current plans include the addition of a third floor to the building, which could host eight staff members, as well as an elevator to make the building accessible.
