Local mobile home park under new ownership

The former Country Meadows mobile home park just north of the City of Gunnison has undergone an ownership transition this spring, and with it has come housing insecurity for many who live there. After residents’ unsuccessful efforts to acquire the property for themselves, the new property owner has changed the park’s name and increased rent by more than 70% in the first few weeks of ownership. Residents report that maintenance of the property has ceased, and some are currently without water. Gunnison County representatives are hoping to work with the new owners, and legislation offering better protection to mobile home park residents has just been signed by Governor Jared Polis—but in the meantime hundreds of Gunnison County residents who own their mobile homes but not the land underneath them are reviewing their rights and limited options amidst a local housing crisis.

Fire district puts campus construction plans on hold for 2022

Terminates property IGA with town of CB…looking at Spann property next door. The Crested Butte Fire Protection District is putting its proposal to construct a new fire station on a temporary hold while at the same time withdrawing from the Intergovernmental Agreement (IGA) with the town of Crested Butte. That IGA was the agreement that defined how the town would have provided the district 1.55 acres of land in the Slate River subdivision for the new emergency campus under certain conditions. Fire district representatives no longer see construction realistically starting in 2022 as hoped but they are communicating with Gunnison County about possibly building the campus or part of the campus on the land just north of the town boundary that is owned by Spann Ranches.

Online ballots only; results and board elections scheduled for August.

The POA board of directors has made it a priority in the past four months to address the former issues and prepare a new vote as quickly as possible.
