Berlaimont Estates applied for a permanent easement across National Forest System lands, seeking to accommodate permanent, year-round vehicular access to the property. The proposed access, approximately 5.3 miles, will utilize and improve the existing Forest Service Road network to minimize disturbance and limit construction impact.

In 2014, the Eagle County Board of County Commissioners granted a variance from dual access standard while providing for emergency turnout spacing, and road design standards. The design of the proposed road ensures public safety while creating the least environmental impact in accessing the property.

Berlaimont Estates firmly commits itself to principles of sustainable development. By leveraging extensive development experience and collaborating with local experts, professionals and community stakeholders, Berlaimont Estates strives to protect the environment within the development as well as in the surrounding areas in order to conserve and enhance recreational opportunities within the neighborhood. Berlaimont Estates focuses on reduced density, various mitigation measures such as the Wildland Fire Mitigation Plan, strict adherence to construction and design standards, CC&R and the Homeowners Association governing documents. Diligent planning and oversight will allow Berlaimont Estates to create a unique low-density development and minimize its resource impact.
