News on Eldora Expansion via Middle Boulder Creek Coalition

Below is a message from the Middle Boulder Creek Coalition. The proposed Eldora Ski expansion will likely have an effect on Middle Boulder Creek – Please consider signing on / helping our with the Coalition’s efforts…


HOW TO HELP

The Forest service has issued its Draft Record of Decision on Eldora Mountain Resort’s expansion plan and approved everything that Eldora asked for, but the process is not yet complete.

If you made comments last year to the Forest Service concerning Eldora’s plan to expand to Middle Boulder Creek to the north and Jenny Creek to the south, or if you commented during the Scoping Period in 2012, then you have legal standing to file an objection with the Forest Service.

FILE AN OBJECTION

You can file on your own (see sample letter)
or co-sign the objection
that the Middle Boulder Creek Coalition is filing.
You have until May 4 to file on your own.

OTHER WAYS YOU CAN HELP

DONATE TO MBCC
to help pay our environmental consultant who is preparing the formal objection. We may have legal fees as well.

WRITE A POLITE E-MAIL

of support to the
Boulder County Commissioners who share some of our concerns
about Eldora’s expansion plans:
  • Impacts to the Middle Boulder Creek Drainage and visitors to the Indian Peaks Wilderness
  • No need for the bridge across the creek
  • Non-existent wind study
  • Lack of alternatives to the proposed expansion
  • Lack of consideration of County land use plans.
Boulder County has considerable leverage in the issue, since Eldora has a Special Use Permit with the County, and would likely need County approval for several key elements in the expansion proposal. Go to middlebouldercreekcoalition.org
for a sample letter to the Boulder County Commissioners.
