Have you found yourself looking around Summit County and wondering just how much more it can grow, how much more can be built before no space to build upon remains? The Summit County Planning Department conducted what is called a Residential Buildout Analysis to attempt to answer those questions. The study provided actual and projected numbers for how much development has occurred and how much remains to be built.

The most recent Buildout Analysis was updated December 31, 2019, before anyone knew what was about to happen in the world. While it would be ideal to have a study dated as recent as yesterday, 2020 was a year of disruptions. The Buildout Analysis wasn’t really on anyone’s mind last year. Regardless, the hard data in the 2019 study remains the…

Now in our last month of summer, ski season buzz is inevitably on the way. It’s been 8 years since Breckenridge Ski Resort unveiled something new on the mountain, so the new Peak 7 chair is highly anticipated, especially by those who love skiing and riding Peaks 6 and 7. With the postponement of construction now behind us, the new chair is set to debut for the 2021-2022 ski season. Last month, Breckenridge Ski Resort announced the new lift will be named the Freedom SuperChair. “Freedom and Independence. Two words that go together like Peanut Butter and Jelly…” With pandemic restrictions lifted and the feeling we all get gliding downhill on the snow, we can’t think of a more fitting name.

The new Freedom SuperChair will be a high-speed quad lift that…

With approximately 10 months of construction remaining, the new parking structure currently doesn’t look like much. The final plan features include heated sidewalks, a plaza with restrooms, elevators, availability signate, electric car charging stations, and pedestrian improvements along the eastern side bordering the Blue River. The architectural design is influenced by Breckenridge’s mining history and will include wood siding, stone accents and native landscaping. The idea of drawing visitors toward Main Street restaurants and shops after a day on the mountain also played a big role in the functional design aspects.

Artist renderings of site plans and construction timeline can be seen on the Town of Breckenridge website.
