Back To Square One for Village At Wolf Creek
(2008-02-19)
(ksut) -
HOST LEAD: It's apparently back to square one for developers seeking approval to build a village for 10-thousand atop Wolf Creek Pass.
A court agreement signed today (Tuesday) ends 16 months of legal wrangling over the project.
KSUT's Victor Locke reports.

VICTOR: Durango based Colorado Wild, the San Luis Valley EcoSystem Council and Environmental Law Center sued 16 months ago to stop approval of the Village at Wolf Creek.
They charged the Environmental Impact Statement conducted by the Forest Service approving road access for Texas billionaire Red McCombs village was flawed and tainted, by impropriety and closed door dealings.
The suit also charged the EIS failed to take into account the full environmental impacts of the village.
In the signed agreement settling the federal lawsuit, the Forest Service and McCombs have agreed to throw out the existing EIS and start the process over again.
A news release from the conservation groups says the agreement will insure the public will have a true picture of the environmental impacts of any new proposal from McCombs, as well as an opportunity to be involved in the decision making process.
From KSUT, I'm Victor Locke.
