EL JEBEL AND BASALT, CO — The Eagle County Commissioners voted 2-1 Tuesday night to give conceptual approval to developer Ace Lane’s controversial Tree Farm project in El Jebel.Supporters tout the project’s affordable housing, pedestrian and transit orientation, and energy efficiency standards that far exceed Eagle County’s building code and national LEED standards.Foes said the project is too dense — especially since it is in one of the heaviest populated parts of the valley.
