The Pitkin County Commissioners plan visit to Brush Creek site to assess project’s impacts. Wildlife impacts rose to the top of the list Wednesday when the commissioners took their initial look at a new plan to build 10 homes in the hills above the Brush Creek Valley, on a ridge between Owl Creek Road and Brush Creek Road. The proposed Brush Creek Ranch development, on the Droste family property, calls for a cluster of 10 homes tucked out of sight above the valley floor, plus an eleventh lot in the valley encompassing a collection of ranch buildings that already exist. A road cutting into the hills on the south side of Brush Creek Road would access the houses.
