It is hard to believe that we are into June and there is still a lot of snow surrounding us. The golf course opened Friday to passholders only, with holes 3 – 7 only. Hopes are that we will see a lot of melting this week and the entire course is scheduled to open on the 14th. Locally, it is predicted that peak runoff will be about a month later than normal.
Many owners have been surprised to learn that the hotel in the Chapel Lot is well underway. Despite the weather we have had, the contractor was successful in digging and pouring the foundation last month. Backfilling and rough plumbing is well underway and we expect to see framing begin soon. We have been told that the Tucker Mountain lift is moving along and the foundation for the top terminal is currently being excavated. This Thursday is the Ten Mile Planning Commission hearing for the development at A-lift. Most of you know this is not a development I support, but it has enough people behind it that I think it is inevitable it will become reality. The two employee buildings (44 Units) planned for the North Alpine Lot are scheduled to begin later this summer and completion in time for the 2020 – 21 ski season. These will be apartments owned and rented by Powdr. Completion of the new Solitude Station building is on the same schedule with the existing Solitude planned for use this next winter.
Summer activities will begin on June 14, with most restaurants and shops re-opening. It seems that our window of opportunity to accomplish projects in units becomes smaller each year. As Copper becomes more popular and more visited, this is inevitable. The entire region is bustling with activity, as Summit County has been discovered!
Copper has submitted a plan to install a tennis court on the parking lot constructed last summer, just east of the Copper Metropolitan Building. While we welcome the idea of finally having a tennis court again, the orientation has been criticized by many. The east – west orientation is not the way a tennis court should be constructed and hopefully this will be altered. Perhaps a different location needs to be considered. Please communicate your ideas to Copper. I’ve stated, if we are going to have a tennis court, do it correctly.
This fall the Metro District and Resort Internet plan to do away with the analog channels. Those with old television sets will no longer be able to receive service. A dumpster to dispose of old equipment will likely be arranged. Please be aware of this coming change.
Hopefully, we will see you at Copper soon.
