SEIZING LAND FOR PUBLIC SPACE
Owners end legal fight, sell mountain land to Summit County for open space

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Thursday, April 17, 2014 12:05 AM EDT
BRECKENRIDGE, Colo.


A Breckenridge couple have agreed to sell a 10-acre parcel in the Colorado mountains to Summit County for open space after a months-long court battle.

The Summit Daily News reports Andy and Ceil Barrie reached a $115,000 settlement on Friday after court-ordered mediation.

County authorities moved to seize the land by eminent domain in October. The Barries wanted to use motorized all-terrain vehicles to cross national forest land to get to their property, and county officials argued that threatened water quality and wildlife habitat.

Andy Barrie says he thinks he had a valid legal argument but he had already spent about $80,000 in legal fees and couldn't afford more.

The Barries said they never intended to develop the land and had allowed hikers to use it.
