Currently, there are a handful of proposed developments in the Basalt area. The mid-valley is a desirable place to live, and the demand for housing has sparked fierce debates. Aspen Public Radio’s Wyatt Orme recently attended a meeting for The Tree Farm development, which is currently under review by Eagle County. He discussed the meeting, along the broader context of increased housing and business development in the mid-valley, with producer Christin Kay.
Yesterday, elected officials in Eagle County initially approved plans for a controversial subdivision in the midvalley. The Fields is a 19-acre property, near the intersection of Highway 82 and Valley Road.
