What about local families?

I attended the presentation of the draft of the revised Snake River Master Plan Sept. 1 and was very impressed with the work that has gone into the proposed revisions. The event was well attended and everyone was given a questionnaire to fill out with their comments, which will be considered in the revisions to the draft. One concern is that I did not see many people in the audience that were concerned about being able to buy an entry-level, single-family home in the basin.Most of the attendees were like me and happy with their current housing situation. Currently, the major entry-level, single-family neighborhoods in the basin including Summit Cove, Dillon Valley, Meadow Wood and Keywest Farms are more than 98 percent built-out with a total of five homes for sale under $325,000. To the best of my knowledge, there are not any new neighborhood projects planned. This is a very unhealthy ratio and causes excess inflation in a market which is targeted at young, local, move-up families.If you feel that the Snake River Planning Commission should include in the master plan pursuing additional entry-level, single-family neighborhoods please e-mail Mark Truckey at the Summit County Planning Department at markt@co.summit.co.us or mail your comments to P.O. Box 5660 Frisco, CO 80443. Also have Mark put you on his mailing list.
