ASPEN — Could close to 300 acres of vacant land along the Roaring Fork River in Garfield County be had for $10 million? Not necessarily, but the prospect generated mild interest Tuesday during a joint meeting of Pitkin County commissioners and members of the Glenwood Springs City Council.The elected officials gathered in Aspen for a lunchtime chat about various issues. The fate of the Cattle Creek Colorado property came up when Glenwood Councilman Steve Bershenyi suggested the 289-acre parcel between Carbondale and Glenwood Springs could be had for $10 million.The Cattle Creek property, in the vicinity of Cattle Creek where it joins the Roaring Fork, had previously been the focus of other development proposals by other developers, all of which fell through. The land has been known as Sanders Ranch, Bair Chase and Cattle Creek Crossing. It was graded at one point, leaving a dirt surface that is giving way to weeds.
