From the Vail Daily:

Last week, the Cochrane property was identified as a key piece in Eagle County's vision for a recreation corridor along the Colorado River from State Bridge to Dotsero.
This week, the county inked a deal to purchase the land.
Tuesday, the Eagle County Commissioners approved at $730,000 deal to buy the 17-acre property located at 18231 Colorado Highway 131. The land includes river frontage and a site for a future put-in or pull-out ramp for boaters. The commissioners also noted that the property abuts a state land board parcel which could potentially open up 543 acres to public use.
While the county officials called the Cochrane purchase a strategically important open space buy, some property neighbors were less enthused with the deal. They noted access concerns and questioned the purchase price.

Good stuff! It sounds like they have been keeping this, and other deals, on the down-low so as to not drive the costs up.
