Summit County government is seeking feedback from the community on preliminary conceptual-design options for a future workforce housing neighborhood on the Lake Hill property, located along Dillon Dam Road, adjacent to the Town of Frisco. Community members are invited to a public open house on June 29. Summit County began the master planning process for the 45-acre Lake Hill property in April, working collaboratively with the Town of Frisco, Summit Combined Housing Authority and other public- and private-sector stakeholders. More than 250 community members participated in the initial brainstorming phase of the master-planning process through interviews, focus groups and a previous community open house in April. The project team has also conducted extensive site analysis, studying the site’s topography, development constraints and infrastructure options. The community open house will take place from 5-7 p.m.Wednesday, June 29, at the Summit County Community and Senior Center, 83 Nancy’s Pl., Frisco. Attendees will have the opportunity to weigh in on the neighborhood plans, the vision for the community, parking plans, storage, architecture, the mix of housing types, community amenities and other features of the future neighborhood. Complimentary refreshments will be provided. For more information on the Lake Hill Neighborhood Master Plan project, visit www.SummitCountyCO.gov/lakehill(PR COURTESY OF SUMMIT COUNTY GOV)

 On Saturday and Sunday, July 23 and 24, the statewide nonprofit Volunteers for Outdoor Colorado (VOC), in partnership with the Town of Breckenridge, is seeking more than 100 volunteers to help construct a Breckenridge trail in the historic Galena Ditch. The Galena Ditch Trail in Breckenridge is just 4-years-old, but the abandoned mining route it follows was cut into the hillside more than a century ago. Today, the trail serves hikers and bikers as part of an extensive alpine trail network in and around Breckenridge. The area provides scenic views as well as an up-close look at long-abandoned ruins and other mining remnants. VOC teamed with the Town of Breckenridge to begin this trail segment in 2012, and is excited to return this year to complete the work. No experience is necessary to volunteer. For registered volunteers, free meals and camping will be provided Saturday morning through Sundayafternoon. The project will take place from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday and 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Sunday and volunteers can come for both days or just one. To Volunteer: Volunteers are asked to register in advance to ensure adequate quantities of tools, supplies, and food. Register via the Volunteers for Outdoor Colorado volunteer project calendar at www.voc.org/projects or call 303-715-1010.    (PR COURTESY OF VOLUNTEERS FOR OUTDOOR COLORADO)
