Silverthorne sets community meeting with incoming town officials

Silverthorne will host a community meeting to introduce the town council candidates slated to be sworn into office in April.

Last week the town of Silverthorne announced it had canceled the April municipal election due to a lack of candidates.

On April 9, Bruce Butler will be sworn in as Silverthorne’s next mayor. Derrick Fowler, Peggy Long and Jonathan Bird will be sworn in as town council members.

The community meeting takes place tonight, Monday, March 10, from 6 to 8 p.m. in council chambers at Silverthorne Town Hall, 601 Center Circle. The mayor- and council members-elect will address the following topics:

The biggest opportunities and challenges facing Silverthorne in the next five years

Vision for a successful downtown Silverthorne

Vision for a successful workforce housing development at Smith Ranch

New goals for the Parks, Trails and Open Space master plan update taking place later this year

Following closing remarks, residents can meet with the candidates. Light refreshments will be served. For more information, call the town of Silverthorne at 262-7300.
