Minturn voters decide fate of private ski resort

MINTURN ” If waving at cars and holding up signs are any indication, plenty

of voters will be saying “yes” to a developer’s plans to build a private ski

resort near Minturn.

The “yes” votes definitely had a more visual presence on Main Street Minturn

today as residents cast their votes in a special election deciding whether

the Ginn Development Company’s plans to build 1,700 homes and condominiums,

a ski area and a golf course around Battle Mountain should be a part of

Minturn.

Residents are voting on 11 questions ” nine which call for including parts

of Ginn’s development in the town, and two authorizing the mayor to sign the

annexation agreement and water service agreement with Ginn.

Small white and green signs, saying “Vote yes on all 11” lined the streets,

and supporters waved at cars.
