ASPEN / BASALT AND EL JEBEL REAL ESTATE— It’s Eagle County or bust for developer Ace Lane. Lane’s midvalley development project, the Tree Farm, is scheduled to go back to the Eagle County commissioners for review and a possible vote Tuesday. Am Aug. 21st  letter from Lane’s development team to a county planner said if the project is denied, he will continue to work with Eagle County on a revised plan rather than submit an application to the town of Basalt. Town officials have urged Eagle County to deny the project because it is an urban-style development. They want Lane to apply to the town so they can adequately review and require mitigation for impacts on the town like increased traffic and demand for police.
