This story is found in the 2019 edition of Milepost.

This area is economically, ethnically, and historically diverse. Huge resorts rise to the west and cattle graze in the verdant eastern valleys. A mining past has given way to a resort economy that is booming, to say the least. It’s a desirable place to be and the lifestyle is the envy of many.

The summers are perfect, with moderate temperatures and afternoon rains, while the winters bring the deep snow and blue skies for which we are famous. Our garages are filled with boats, bikes, and skis. Vacation homes and visitors subsidize our bus systems, recreation centers and schools. Taxes are low, but increasing, to meet the demands for transit, schools and roads. Summit County still has the lowest property tax rate of all 29 counties in the state. Everyone who lives here agrees on one thing: it’s just a great place to live, work, and visit.
