Bair Chase developer in Chapter 11 bankruptcy

A Texas firm that couldnt afford to pay a representative to attend a Garfield County Commission meeting in October will apparently present its Bair Chase development plan to the Planning and Zoning Commission on Feb. 11.The firm, Links Vest/Bair Chase LLC, is involved in a Chapter 11 bankruptcy proceeding, according to a letter from its manager, Todd B. Wehner, on file with the Bair Chase at Sanders Ranch development application at the Garfield County Courthouse.Wehners letter is one of the few clues available about Links Vest/Bair Chase LLC. The companys local representative, Jim Wells, did not return phone calls about his employers plans.Wells is mentioned, however, in an Aug. 27 letter from Garfield county attorney Carolyn Dahlgren to county planner Mark Bean. In the letter, on file with the development application, Dahlgren wrote that Wells reported he couldnt attend the Oct. 8, 2003, planning commission meeting because Links Vest/Bair Chase LLC couldnt pay him.He (Wells) does not expect to have an office to work out of in September, Dahlgrens letter concluded.Wells did not return a reporters phone calls Thursday.Corporate finances aside, the Garfield County Planning and Zoning Commission has scheduled a public hearing for a Bair Chase at Sanders Ranch planned unit development (PUD) amendment and preliminary plan at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 11.Bean said the PUD amendment is minor, and is nothing significant.It does not increase the density, Bean said.The Bair Chase at Sanders Ranch PUD calls for 48 single-family homes, 182 multi-family dwelling units, and a private golf course on 281 acres on Highway 82 between Glenwood Springs and Carbondale.The county commissioners approved the development, touted as an exclusive golf club, in 2001, but the project has been in hibernation ever since.Contact Lynn Burton: 945-8515, ext.
