Unless you have been living under a rock, I am sure you have received multiple emails, read many articles written in the Flume, followed conversations on-line on Pinecam, or maybe even seen the petition down at the Cutthroat Café, about community concerns with the Human Movement Management (HMM), a race production company, and their Park County Land Lease Proposal. Jeff Suffolk, CEO of HMM and a Louisville resident running for the Louisville City Council, has been pursuing a 30-year land lease for almost a year. The HMM commercial development proposal calls for hosting 100-10,000 participants “Dirty Girl” adventure race events and camp for “Denver” underprivileged youth on a parcel of 480 acres of pristine State Trust Land between Bailey and Shawnee called McArthur Gulch. This multi-use development would consist of at least 20 cabins, racing trails, shooting guns, event buildings and vast parking grounds. If the Suffolk agreement is accepted, an agricultural lease and a Colorado Parks & Wildlife lease will be nullified.
As quoted from the HMM’s website: “Our mission is to make your weekend’s ‘effing awesome.” Human Movement Management® (HMM) is an active entertainment company based in Louisville, Colorado that for the last decade has been producing some of the world’s largest running races, beer festivals, triathlons, obstacle races and outdoor events in North America. Yet, we still find time for happy hour at our office lounge, “The Carni-Cabin”. http://www.humanmovement.me
As quoted from the Citizens Determined to Save McArthur Gulch: “The HMM Development of McArthur Gulch is a threat to our community, environment and wildlife, our safety and our wallets.”
