Building Action in Telluride Mountain Village

Earlier today I took a drive through the town of Mountain Village to see if the Building activity within the Town of Telluride has had a positive spillover effect.  Overall there are 10 new homes being built in a variety of stages from dirt/foundation work to finish work.  The sizes differ as well, with smaller properties of about 2,500-3,000 square feet being built at Trails Edge and Cabins at Gold Hill to Oprah Winfrey’s monstrosity on the end of Snowdrift Lane.

The finishing of Bank Owned phase 2 of Cortina and Lorian 3 are ongoing as well.  I also noticed seven large residential remodel projects.

So, to summarize, the activity is good and an improvement over the last 5 years, but not as crazy as one might think.  Building costs are still somewhat stable, with new luxury construction averaging about $425 per square foot

New Telluride Medical Center Will Be In Mountain Village

The Board of the Telluride Hospital District, acted quickly after the Town of Telluride Voters denied use of the RV lot on west Telluride for a future Medical Center.  Of the three sites available, The new Medical Center will be in Mountain Village, along Mountain Village Boulevard in between the Fire Station and market.  The town of Mountain Village is giving that parcel away for free!

Also, pushing that decision was the Gondola access, for tourists who often do not travel here with vehicles and locals who won’t have to get in their car for medical care.  Closer proximity to skiing and mountain biking accidents was also a plus.  Further good news is this new site allows for further expansion of over 25,000 square feet if needed.

There is still a lot of work to be done, including a major fundraising campaign.  This search started in 2006.  The current facility was built in 1978 and is too small for the community’s needs and is on land the Medical Center rents from Idarado Mining Company.

Telluride Election Results

Two major ballot issues in Telluride, Colorado were decided yesterday.  The Telluride School District won in its bid to raise $24 million dollars for expansion of  the high school/middle school.  The expansion will feature more classrooms, expanded cafeteria, new AstroTurf athletic fields, new gymnasium, redesigned entryways, performing arts space and more.

The second question involved the RV parking lot on South Mahoney Drive and its future use.  The Medical Center had hoped to win the election and entertain the idea of keeping the Medical Center in historic Telluride.  Unfortunately the voters decided an alternate use was the highest and best use.  Possibilities?  A Rec Center and Affordable Housing, and both are good candidates for that space off of South Mahoney Drive.  It looks like the Medical Center will end up in Mountain Village near the Mountain Village market, or Lawson Hill.  Personally, I prefer the Mountain Village location, of these two choices, due to its accessibility by the Gondola, and easier access to take injured skiers off the resort.
