Construction of the Green Mountain Reservoir Dam began in 1938 as part of the Colorado Big-Thompson Project.
The Knorr Ranch once existed at the basin of the present-day Green Mountain Reservoir waters and was relocated to land at a higher elevation surrounding the reservoir to accommodate the project.
The Knorr Lakeside Ranch presents an opportunity for future development of sub-dividable land with water rights, to help meet the housing demands of the growing community.
This unencumbered property overlooking the reservoir is also ideally situated for a developer with big ideas, including the potential for a golf course or other project that has unique requirements such as ample water resources.
Summit County has an aggressive conservation and open space program, with a mill levy funding mechanism in place for acquisition of open space.
