Residents' annex petition came first, county says
The developer apparently made no attempt to work within the system. The local
paper contained letters about high handed and threatening tactics. No doubt,

as Jackson Hole or Sun Valley instead of Aspen. How about Vail or Breckenridge?
He's got a lot of equally unoriginal names he can trot out.
