The Berlaimont Estates project proposes a new paved road, nearly 30 feet in width, cutting across 4.2 miles of National Forest, in the heart of some of Eagle County’s best remaining wildlife habitat. The proposal would remove the existing seasonal closure in critical deer and elk winter range to allow year-round access to a 680-acre, private inholding deep inside the forest. A dirt road currently exists, but the developer is requesting a substantial upgrade to accommodate 19 new luxury homes above the community of Edwards. To date, we've collected more than 3,700 petition signatures from the local community, asking the Forest Service to do the right thing and deny this damaging road. Help us reach 4,000 signatures before they issue their final decision this fall. SIGN THE PETITION today.
