The Vail Village and Lionshead Village are invaluable assets to the community. Thousands of people come to Vail each year to sightsee, recreate, shop and to enjoy everything the Vail Valley has to offer. The community and merchants rely upon our guests to generate revenue. Our summer/winter guests expect a pleasant experience while in Vail.

To insure all of the proposed construction has as little negative impact on the community and on our guests as possible, the Town of Vail finds it imperative to create, implement the Vail Village and Lionshead Village Construction Information Handout.

It would be irresponsible for the Town of Vail, the construction contractors and the merchants, to not actively participate to minimize the impact of construction in the Vail and Lionshead Village areas.
