Dial-a-Ride gets a new name and new state of the art technology to improve and enhance service….

Dial-a-Ride will become Village Connect. Summertime / Fall hours: 7 days a week 7:00am-Midnight For a convenient ride anywhere within Beaver Creek or Bachelor Gulch, call 970-949-1938 to arrange a pick up.

New Technology Upgrades: a new transportation booking platform is coming soon which will enable the community to book all its resort transportation on an APP based platform replacing the historical procedure of calling dispatch to arrange a vehicle. In addition, the new APP will enable the community to view on a map the current location of the Village Connect vehicle coming to pick you up with live estimated times of arrival. No longer will you need to peek out your window to see if the bus has arrived to pick you up! However, if an owner still desires to call in to make a reservation, the option to call in to dispatch will continue to be available. A follow up communication will be sent to the community from BCPOA once the new APP is available, estimated to be in early September.

A great, cost free benefit to Beaver Creek residents. Eagle County Alert…

This free communication tool provided by Eagle County will enable you to get up to the minute communication on any weather, road, traffic, and emergency conditions you wish to receive through text on your cell phone, in an email, or both. The great thing about this service is you customize it to your choice of options. Our neighbors who have subscribed have very positive things to say about it. Try it, you will like it.

Eagle County Alert – www.ecalert.org

  • Individuals need to sign up for EC Alerts, and select their preferred “depth” of notifications

Depth options include schools, traffic alerts, business alerts, specific communities, river alerts, and various weather related/emergency alerts

  • This is a subscription (no cost) for an individual to get notified by text, email or both
  • Everything distributed through reverse 911 also gets sent out to EC Alert recipients. This redundancy is an important feature. It also ensures residents will receive updates even when they are not in Beaver Creek.

Beaver Creek Public Safety support…

Beaver Creek Public Safety can be a second line of defense for the protection of your property but for them to be effective and efficient property owners need to contact Public Safety at 970 949 4911 and provide them with updated information on property ownership, caretaker contact information, owner’s home and mobile phone numbers so they can contact the correct individuals if and when something happens to your property. Did you also know that Beaver Creek Public Safety can be added as a contact with your alarm monitoring company? That is a good idea as they may be in the closest proximity to your property when problems arise. Call your monitoring company today.

The Bears are back in town….

With the seasonal bear activity in and around Beaver Creek, it has become clear that this activity is driven by the readily available human food sources. The food sources made available by humans provide bears substantial calories with very little effort. Here are some important steps to follow to minimize the extent to which our residents are feeding the bear population:

1. Never feed a bear.

2. Trash management – Use only bear resistant trash containers and store them indoors between pick-ups. Put trash out the morning of pick up and bring in empty trash receptacles the same day. Empty receptacles will also attract bears.

3. Do not feed birds at all when bears are active (March-November). This includes seeds and hummingbird feeders.

4. Lock all lower level doors and windows, including sliding doors and pet doors. Upper level doors and window should also be secured if they are accessible via tree limbs or a deck.

5. BBQ grills will attract bears even when not in use. They should be stored indoors or cleaned of all food residue and grease following each use.

6. Do not feed pets outdoors.

7. Remove fruit bearing trees and bushes from property. If you have fruit bearing trees, the fruit should be removed ASAP.

8. During winter months, when bears are in hibernation, it is important to maintain all of these practices as they will still attract other wildlife like raccoons and fox, which will in turn attract mountain lions. If you choose to use bird feeders while bears are hibernating, pick up the spilled or excess seed frequently as it will attract these small mammals.

9. Please report all bear activity to Beaver Creek Public Safety (970-754-4911). They will respond, document the encounter, and contact the Colorado Division of Parks and Wildlife if necessary.

10. Help all of Beaver Creek by sharing this information with your neighbors.

Beaver Creek Public safety updates their EVACUATION PLAN

There has been a longstanding Evacuation Plan for the Beaver Creek community which has always been interfaced with Eagle County, the state of Colorado, and our federal government. Recently Jim Clancy, Director of Public Safety has updated and condensed Beaver Creek’s Evacuation Plan and it is in place to handle any potential evacuation of our community. The plan is a fluid plan that supports evacuation for any number of reasons and has the support of multiple government agencies to react for the greatest impact to those effected.
