Garfield County Board Ok’s Land Use Grant for Carbondale Parcel

Glenwood Springs—The Garfield County Board of Commissioners agreed to help the town of Carbondale buy a 25 acre parcel with a $200,000 contribution from the conservation trust fund.  The catch is, the money will come from the 2019 budget if it’s there to buy Red Hill just north of town.  Town Manager Jay Harrington says the long term plan is to design a trail parallel to the roadway.  Carbondale and the Aspen Valley Land Trust are partners in the project.
