No where in Eagle County is our County’s Economy more in flux now than in the Eagle-Gypsum Communities. ECT readers can expect to see big changes coming down valley in the next 60 days. For the most part things remained (stalled) in Avon at Traer Creek’s (Wal~Mart) development. Why? You won’t see much up valley development activity until the new, soon to be installed (big Water Tank – Eagle River Water and Sanitations tank) is online and operational at and for Traer Creek’s development. You read it here at the ECT, first.
Meanwhile…on Tuesday, May 22nd 2012 Eagle voters will give (or not) their approval on Eagle River Station (version 2). While ERS is a big economic factor it is by no means the only large economic driver in play down valley.
– ECT readers can expect to read important news about new activity at Gypsum’s (development rights already approved) Tower Center (located – Click Here).
– It has been reported that Eagle’s City Market grocery store is responsible for ~40% of Eagle’s Sales Tax revenue…also reported that City Market is interested in expanding their Eagle store to increase sales and improve their customer parking/store experience. Indeed, where best for City Market to do that? To add your voice to that discussion, see (read:take) the City Market Consumer Survey the other ECT story this week (Click Here)
– How will the proposed International Terminal at EGE Airport effect the Communities located around EGE in particular – Gypsum, where our Airports runway is physically located?
Know This: There are many factors and financial interests in play right now down valley- and Eagle voters most certainly do not have a voice (nor control) over all of them – however Eagle Voters, vote on ERS v2.0 will have a large effect on what happens next (and where). Very careful consideration is needed when Eagle voters vote next month.
It’s been said;
Some people make things happen
Some people watch things happen
Some people wondered what happened
Based on Eagle’s Majority Voters choice (Click Here) – it would seem in Eagle…some folks just "Don’t Worry, because they now have Mayor Yuri" – soon the ECT predicts – many will be wondering just what happened.
Stay tuned. The ECT has not been given permission to write about everything the ECT has been told…yet.
