Vail at the Crossroads

Must Peter Knobel destroy the village to save it?


On April 26, the Vail town clerk announced that there were enough signatures to put the proposal to a vote this summer. The date has yet to be set, but the campaigns have already started.

Directly across the highway from Vail Town Hall is the Middle Creek affordable-housing complex, which was built in 2004 to alleviate Vail's housing crunch for resort and town employees. When the project was first proposed, some longtime Vail residents railed against it, calling the project the "Cabrini Green of the mountains." But the pro-Crossroads Citizens for Change group sees the complex as a place to score possible votes, and has already held a free barbecue for residents.

"Yeah, it was great," reports one complex employee. "It got everyone together to see each other. And then there was a registration table with information about Crossroads. And they had beer, too."
