EagleVail to Return Unspent Bond Funds to Voters
Responding to the suggestion of a resident, the EagleVail Metro District Board of Directors Thursday night voted to return any unspent funds from a successful November bond issue to taxpayers.
At a 5A informational meeting last week, a homeowner suggested that some citizens had expressed to him a distrust that excess bond proceeds at the conclusion of construction might be used by the District to fund other projects not listed on the ballot. He suggested that he and many other voters would feel better about supporting the measure if the Board adopted a resolution that pledged to use the extra cash to pay down debt.
At Thursday’s meeting, the idea of the refund was introduced and a discussion ensued in which Board members expressed their desire that proceeds from the Bonds would be used for the projects contained on the ballot, and that any excess funds could be returned to constituents. The Metro District Board then introduced and passed a resolution that mirrored the resident’s suggestion.
After a of polling all nine Board of Governors members present, with overwhelming support, the EVMD Board unanimously resolved to “dedicate any excess funds remaining from the Bond Issue to the constituents, most likely through a reduction in taxes.”
The successful $10.895 million bond issue would build a community clubhouse, new courts for tennis and pickleball, park improvements, a trail extension and maintenance facility improvements.

Stone Creek Restoration Project
The EagleVail Maintenance Department is in the process of evaluating the overall condition of the waterways throughout the community. The goal is to find a long term sustainable solution that will help us better manage the water in Stone Creek and surrounding ponds. The focus and passion of this study is the protection and enhancement of our aquatic resources. We are currently working with Aqua Sierra, Inc. to help us manage and improve this natural resource.
Aqua Sierra is one of the premier fisheries and water quality consulting firms in the world. Their mission is to provide effective and sustainable solutions for water management. The EagleVail Maintenance Department has worked with Aqua Sierra on a variety of projects over the past couple of years, including a water feasibility study that was conducted last fall. During this study we found numerous areas along Stone Creek that are in need of improvement. Several of these locations pose threats of severe erosion to the golf course and to the adjacent residential properties along Stone Creek. Stream channelization and bank stability is one of the primary concerns that will need to be addressed as we move forward in this process.
Stone Creek is a valuable resource to this community. Our emphasis is to create a balanced aquatic eco-system with beautiful ponds and flowing streams. Water adds both beauty and value to our community. To find out more about this project or how to get involved please contact Steven Barber, Director of Parks and Golf Course Maintenance at email@example.com.
