NEWS AND INFORMATION:

Dates set for EV Community Clubhouse Evaluation Process and Public Input
In an effort to hear from homeowners and residents on the issue of renovating or replacing the existing clubhouse, the EagleVail Board of Governors (EVBOG) has set aside several dates and times for that purpose.

The clubhouse options being evaluated include providing some basic replacement at the existing clubhouse, remodeling the existing clubhouse and building a new multi-purpose clubhouse on a lot adjacent to the new swimming pool. Staff and consultants are developing detailed cost estimates for the three options. A committee of homeowners has been tasked with analyzing these details and providing a recommendation to the EVBOG.

The dates that have been set for homeowners and residents to learn about the options and to provide input are:

February 18 5:30-6:30pm Community Meeting EV Golf Course Clubhouse
February 19 4:30pm (agenda tbd) BOG Board Meeting EagleVail Pavilion
March 4 5:30-6:30pm Community Meeting EV Golf Course Clubhouse
March 5 4:30pm (agenda tbd) BOG Board Meeting EagleVail Pavilion
March 19 4:30pm (agenda tbd) BOG Board Meeting EagleVail Pavilion
All are encouraged to attend and participate. Questions, suggestions, comments or concerns about what facilities or programs ought to be considered should be directed to Community Manager Jeff Layman at 970.970.1219 or jefflayman@eaglevail.org or any EagleVail Metro District or Property Owner’s Association board member.

Last week’s annual meeting on Thursday, February 19, was followed by another presentation from the consultant.

Here are some questions/statements that need to be considered or challenged altogether as the community heads towards encumbering each owner with hundreds of new property taxes for years to come. For some, property taxes will increase for some owners by as much as 40% or more over what they are paying now using the consultant’s “conservative” estimate!
1) 39 year old buildings are at end of life. Really? If true, nearly half of EagleVail residences should be scraped and replaced with new
2) Moving down hill will create more demand for other activities besides golf. Really? If true, why hasn’t the Pavilion become a hot commodity with its kitchen facilities. One would think if there was overwhelming demand, Pavilion use and revenues would be at 10 year highs. This is not the case.
3) Urban Land Institute is repeatedly referenced as the most important and guiding study. Consider it likely true the Urban Land Institute is not exactly a “golf loving” outfit. Quite a few of their recent study’s recommendations have yet to be implemented, including connecting the business center, lighting the streets, adding sidewalls and post office boxes. How a potentially $10 million community clubhouse is the next move is beyond our comprehension at this point.

Lastly, it seems some staff and members of the EagleVail Board of Governors are so adamant about pushing this forward they have engaged a bond writing company out of Denver. A case of the cart before the horse? We believe so. What are your thoughts? Please share.
