SUMMIT COUNTY – The Ten Mile Planning Commission adopted its master plan Thursday night in Frisco.Interested community members were present at the meeting as well as Copper Mountain officials, including Intrawest regional vice president Joe Whitehouse and Copper Mountain general manager Steve Paccagnan.Some people at the meeting thought more notice should have been given to those who own property in the basin but don’t live in the county. Tom Malmgren, owner of Carbonate Real Estate in Copper Mountain, suggested the adoption be postponed until the April meeting. Senior county planner John Roberts pointed out that appropriate notice had been given to all significant parties. In order to extend the review period another month, Roberts would have had to consult county commissioners.

One of the primary intents of the plan update was to consolidate the Ten Mile Master Plan, Copper Mountain Subbasin Plan and the Bill’s Ranch Neighborhood Plan into one document.Master plans are used to guide future land use decisions.The Ten Mile Master Plan, which includes Copper Mountain and Bill’s Ranch, applies to the unincorporated areas of the Ten Mile Basin, including Tenmile Canyon, Copper Mountain, Vail Pass, Climax Mine areas and lands surrounding Frisco.
