Breckenridge Grand Vacations Timeshare Project May Get a Boost Today
Tuesday, July 24, 2012
Plans for a new Breckenridge Grand Vacations timeshare may get a boost today when the Breckenridge, Colorado Town Councils meets.
The proposal for a new timeshare at Peak 8, to be owned and developed by Breckenridge Grand Vacations, is one of the items on the agenda for discussion by the Council. A new proposal, which has been in the works for several months, is regarding a development agreement that would enable site work on the new timeshare resort to commence before a final building permit is issued.
The website, Town of Breckenridge (www.townofbreckenridge.com) points out that this plan would be a, “new path for the town, since development codes don’t allow site work to begin before a building permit is issued.”
The proposed plan would give timeshare developer Breckenridge Grand Vacations a head start on developing its new timeshare resort property on Peak 8. The plan would allow the demolishing of the existing structure on the site, the former Bergenhof restaurant (now closed), to commence as well as the start of constructing the new resort infrastructure.
Specifically, writes TownofBreckenridge.com, the plan calls for, “Vail Resorts selling the property to the timeshare developer, as well as an increase in overall density above what is allowed on the site and a decrease in parking spaces.” The density changes would be based on the reclassification of the use of the space.
Additionally, Breckenridge Grand Vacations is proposing a donation on its part, to the town of Breckenridge, in the amount of $25,000 to help ongoing and planned preservations activities in Cucumber Gulch. Cucumber Gulch is a a critical wetlands complex and wildlife habitat, which the town has been working to protect for several years.
Breckenridge Grand Vacations, owner of the Grand Lodge on Peak 7, and other ski area resorts, is one of the most popular ski vacation properties among timeshare owners today.
