There is probably 5 or 6 acres back there which would leave enough room for you to keep the volley ball court and part of the lawn. There is a Denver water easement right there and they may let you pave some of it. The only down side is the loss of some of that choice, lake front sprawling lawn. The Yacht club wasn't built with enough parking to begin with, there are more units than spots, which forces people to park 2 cars deep and the car in the rear is on public property. Good luck
If only it were that easy. Denver water refuses
to let us use the easement. Even if they would, the parking lot would be too close to the high water line for environmental approval. We considered buying a lot across the street, but it is zoned residential and Town of Dillon won't give their word to re-zone it for permitting.
It is a land-grab, plain and simple.
