Breckenridge Grand Vacations Timeshare Gets Needed Council Approval to Build
Sunday, August 19, 2012
Last Tuesday The Breckenridge Town Council gave the needed approval for Breckenridge Grand Vacations timeshare to expand its resort properties with the construction of a new timeshare resort at the base of Peak 8. (See The Timeshare Authority July 24, 2012 for news leading up to this approval: (Breckenridge Grand Vacations Timeshare Project May Get a Boost Today).
The measure passed by a 5-0 vote by the council members, with two non-voting members. Breckenridge Mayor, John Warner, commented on the decision, saying, “It’s helpful to our community from an economic standpoint.”
Development of the new Breckenridge Grand Vacations timeshare at Peak 8 still needs to pass town planning requirements and faces some environmental issues with regards to how the continued development on Peak 8 impacts Cucumber Gulch, an ecologically critical wetlands complex located just below the base area. Recent studies have shown that too much sediment flows downstream into the gulch, but Breckenridge Grand Vacation timeshare developers are very sensitive to this fact and continue to support the resolution of this concern, including making a $25,000 contribution to more research of the Cucumber Gulch environment as part of the project development agreement.
Fast Track Growth Planned for Breckenridge Grand Vacations Timeshare
Breckenridge Grand Vacations timeshare hopes that construction of the new timeshare will coincide with the projected sell-out of the Grand Lodge on Peak 7. Plans for Peak 8 include a five-story, 80-timeshare unit main building, along with an aquatics area, spa, and multiple movie theaters.
After necessary demolitions and utility work, Breckenridge Grand Vacations timeshare hopes that full-scale construction can begin, perhaps as soon as March 2014, with the first phase of timeshares available for your next Colorado ski vacation by December of 2015.
Breckenridge Grand Vacations timeshare executives point out that the new property will boost the economy through construction jobs and provide both ongoing employment opportunities and tax revenues. As one area resident commented on the Facebook page for SummitDaily.com, “Breckenridge Grand Vacations is an amazing company. They give thousands back to the community, create jobs and happen to be great employers. Not to mention, more rooms (equals) more people to visit.”
