Land Conservation vs Development: What Will Be Our Legacy?
The conversation discussing conservation versus development is constant…and has been for centuries. The line between “progress” and “preservation” is a fine one, sometimes creating Hatfield and McCoys out of customarily amenable folks. In Eagle County, the discussions are cordial but ongoing and the decisions as to what will be the lasting legacies in our valley are far-reaching.
In this special edition of the Vail Symposium’s Community Conversations, a panel of several community leaders and stakeholders will discuss the considerations involved when balancing the desire for conservation with the need for development in Eagle County. The goals of local land preservation, the policy concerns of county government planners and the challenges of development in our community will all be addressed. How we move forward and what our community looks like in the years to come depends on how we address and balance these competing priorities. Questions and conversations are encouraged, so make plans to join us for this community forum.
