While going through the Aspen Glen real estate “history” file, I unearthed an article from February 22, 1994 published in the Rocky Mountain News, by John Rebchook. John interviewed Terri Hart, the former senior VP. It was interesting to reflect on how the original vision of the developer influences the community today. Here are some excerpts from this 1994 article.
“The project, being developed by Jon T. Brown, a former environmental lawyer, also includes two popular recreational activities: golf and fly fishing.”
“Brown, who has represented the Sierra Club and served as special assistant to former Interior Secretary Stewart Udall, bought the land two years ago. A portion of the property had been owned by the Sievers family, which operated it as a cattle ranch, and the adjacent land had been owned by Colorado billionaire Philip Anschutz . . . “
“Because Brown has a history of working with environmental groups, he has tried to leave the property as undisturbed as possible, she said.”
“A number of streams and lakes will be added, and Brown has worked the Colorado Division of Wildlife to create and eagle protection area for two bald eagles that have hunted and fished the area from a tree on the property, Hart said.”
In 2015, the bald eagles, the elk herds and other wildlife still happily co-exist with the residents of this vibrant community of Aspen Glen.
