Litigation appears likely in Aspen property dispute: Interests of a nun, a rabbi, sick children and wealthy homeowners hang in balance
ASPEN — The fate of a new Jewish community center on the east side of Aspen will likely end up in a lawsuit because homeowners who live near the proposed facility appear to be blocking the sale of the property with legal threats. Andrea Jaeger, a former professional tennis player, and now a nun who once operated the Silver Lining Ranch as a respite for terminally ill children with cancer, said the Stillwater Ranch Open Space Homeowners Association won’t back off on the position that its covenants don’t allow for the proposed mixed-used center. As a result, the Jewish Resource Center Chabad of Aspen refused in June to close on the sale of the 14,000-square-foot building.The Chabad had entered into a contract to buy the Silver Lining Ranch, which would be converted into a community center.
