Nearly 70% of “Vail Valley” is Already Developed
by Bergen Tjossem
Maps have a way of revealing and showing information in powerful ways. A recent in-house mapping project did not disappoint and yielded information important to EVLT’s core mission of conserving land.
Did you know that less than 2% of all the land in Eagle County has been permanently conserved ? Or that of all the private property in Eagle County, one of every three acres has already been developed or subdivided? Click here to see a map of Eagle County and all EVLT conservation easements.
Importantly, when considering all land within two miles of Interstate 70, more than 2 of every 3 acres has been developed or subdivided. Click here to see our I-70 2-Mile Buffer Analysis.
With the population of Eagle County set to grow from 53,000 to 90,000 in just 25 short years, your support of our work is more important than ever. Support EVLT today at www.evlt.org/give.
