Anyone who has shopped at Avon’s Wal~Mart and Home Depot knows – there’s hundreds of Acres of undeveloped land in East Avon.
That’s where Avon’s real future is – unquestionably going to be.
He’s what they’re not telling you –
The hundred’s of Acres of land (in East Avon) owned by Traer Creek was originally brought into the Town of Avon under a legal agreement called the “1998 Annexation Agreement” – where specific development rights (the original PUD) were granted to Avon developer – Traer Creek. Interestingly, VD Columnist (Richard Carnes – serving on Avon Town Council at the time – voted on that 1998 – Agreement)
PUD = Planned Unit Development
Where are we today? Fast Forward (16) years. Today – since the (multi-year) litigation is now settled between Avon and developer Traer Creek. – the new Settlement Agreement that is now in place is (for all intensive purposes) the new development PUD.
Q.) Why isn’t the current Avon Town Council (that approved this settlement agreement) – even talking about it! Hundreds of Acers of new Avon Development now underway!

To the left of the photo – is the new, BIG, UERWA “Water Tank” that will be filled with water this coming week. UERWA = Upper Eagle River Water Authority. Turns out that new Water Tank was required by both the Water and Fire Districts to be online and operational before any new significant Development could take place on Traer Creek’s land.
Also happening now – Commercial Real Estate offerings by Traer Creek including (most likely) a new “cement pad” that a new I-70 Gas Station could use – as a site for a new station (Photo Below). Also possible – a commercial site for a new (north side) I-70 Hotel between Vail and Beaver Creek – Ski Resorts.
Bottom Line: Don’t be fooled by the tiny 2015 (intended) development (distractions?) the current Avon Town Council – is promoting. Their so called “Main Street and Town Hall plans” are incredibly insignificant – compared to what is (really happening) now in East Avon –not because of today’s Avon Council – but in spite of them.
The “real action” in Avon will be on hundreds of acres of land owned by developer Traer Creek – now and into the next several years in Eagle County. You can Bank on it.
