Buckhorn Ranch Community Improvements


I am excited to show off the new front entrance and street landscape project at Buckhorn Ranch located here in the beautiful mountain community of Crested Butte Colorado. Buckhorn Ranch is only five minutes outside of town but the place lives like its in the middle of its own private high mountain valley. This community improvement project is the result of a ton of volunteer effort (including myself and fellow Buckhorn Ranch property owners Bob Silverman, Trish Layton, Grant Bremer and Ben Somrak) and the professional guidance of Margaret Loperfido of Sprout Studio (our landscape architect and project coordinator), Peter O’Rourke (general contracting), Lacy Construction, Spring Creek Landscape Company and Gunnison County.

The installation work commenced during the Fall of 2014 and was completed in two phases . Phase 1 involved re-grading, widening, and paving the main access road into the subdivision from Brush Creek Road. These improvements were intended to make it safer while entering and leaving the community particularly for the school bus and snow plows!

Phase 2 involved adding visual enhancements included the timbered archway pictured, new worm fencing, new signage and new landscaping and mature trees at the front entrance. Additionally, all new street signage, stop signs and yield signs were installed throughout the neighborhood.

We all hope you appreciate the new look at Buckhorn Ranch!
