State of The Valley: Key Influencers Say Eagle County is Making Progress in Housing, Transportation, Workforce Development

State Of The Valley

State of The Valley

We’re all too familiar with the valley’s struggles with housing and workforce retention. But valley leaders believe there’s positive movement, especially with voter approval to create a new transportation authority.

The Vail Valley Partnership and Vail Symposium hosted an annual State of the Valley session Wednesday, and there was some post-election enthusiasm.

The panel for Wednesday’s session included Eagle County Manager Jeff Shroll, Beaver Creek Resort Vice President and Chief Operating Officer Nadia Guerriero, Vail Health CEO Will Cook, and Eagle County School District Superintendent Phil Qualman. The four talked at length about the state of, and possible future of, the valley’s community and economy.

Panelists noted that there are several housing projects that are either under construction or are about to be. Vail Resorts has put $300,000 over the next five years into a partnership with the local chapter of Habitat for Humanity, a community partner of Vail Health’s Eagle Valley Behavioral Health.
