Letter to the editor: We urge Breckenridge council ask Peak 8 developer for changes

My wife and I are owners at One Ski Hill Place and have been since 2011.

We have been following the development plans for the East Peak 8 property and have grown increasingly concerned regarding several issues:

• Traffic increase: We strongly oppose the addition of the 150 day-use memberships. The traffic up Ski Hill Road is a huge problem for residents of One Ski Hill Place and will only become worse with the increased number of cars the development will bring. Many of our owners at One Ski Hill Place are seasonal or full-time residents, and this daily inconvenience will become a daily nightmare for all of us. We urge the Breckenridge council to carefully consider this issue of increased traffic to the already overburdened Ski Hill Road. We also urge you to consider the safety issues if and when emergency vehicles must access the top of Ski Hill Road.

• View corridor discrepancy: We are greatly concerned about the discrepancy between the required measurement of the view corridor between East Peak 8 and One Ski Hill Place (about 47 feet) and what the actual separation has measured in at (about 20 feet).

• Adverse affects of loading docks: The loading docks and trash area for East Peak 8 will cause our quiet, mountain home to become a noisy, malodorous dwelling, which defeats the purpose not only of us as owners using our unit as a quiet getaway but also for all guests who are trying to relax with their families. Consideration should be made to change the placement of the loading locks and trash area for East Peak 8.

We hope that you can help bring some awareness to the obtrusive plans of the East Peak 8 developer and help us convince them to make the appropriate changes.
