"Karen Moculeski leads the Keep Missouri Heights Rural group that is wading into the Cottonwood Pass discussion. Her group of residents from the pastoral communities of ranches and homes atop the pass is pushing county leaders and CDOT to incorporate resident concerns in any study looking at improvements to the road.

"No one is saying that the highway closure in Glenwood is not an issue. We are simply asking if money should be better spent to fix Glenwood Canyon,” Moculeski said. “We are not necessarily taking a viewpoint or position right now other than to say residents need to be heard now, not later after CDOT finishes its study or survey.” ~ Colorado Sun

Harmony/White Cloud Property (former Ascendigo property)

White Cloud is the former Ascendigo Property that we fought so hard to protect from over development and commercial use in Spring 2021. As you know the property was sold by Ascendigo to a family owned LImited Liability Corporation (LLC). A new additional lot is being proposed by the new owner that requires County approval.

From the Aspen Times - "A controversial property slated for dense residential development in the midvalley was recommended for upzoning in a 3-2 vote by the Roaring Fork Valley Regional Planning Commission on Thursday.

The rezoning recommendation to Eagle County commissioners from Rural Residential to Residential Multi-Family allows The Fields development team to build as many as 135 homes on the 19.39-acre parcel.

Rural Residential only allows one residence per 2 acres, which would’ve limited the development team, led by Evan Schreiber, to build nine homes on the property located across from the Blue Lake subdivision and west of Crown Mountain Park off Highway 82.

Cedar Ridge Ranch (CRR) is a property off of Crystal Springs Road in Missouri Heights. Neighbors, the owners of CRR, and even the Garfield County Commissioners have been unclear about what land uses are allowed on the property and what are not, and whether or not the property complies with their Land Use Change Permit.
