Kirk Schneider
Vice President
Being a father of two boys, my focus on the recreation in this area is very important to our family.  In the summer time you will find us on the Golf course, hiking, biking, or playing baseball and lacrosse.  In the winter we take full advantage of the amazing ski mountains we have around us.  Truly blessed to live in this valley, and have the access to such an amazing area.

Leroy Duroux
Treasurer
As a Town of Basalt Trustee, I was a proponent of the construction of Crown Mountain Park. My past and current experiences with special districts include Mid-Valley Metro District Board for 8 years, Basalt and Rural Fire Protection District Board for 8 years, and currently serving on the Roaring Fork Fire and Rescue Board of Directors.  As town council member for 9 + years and Mayor of Basalt for 8 years, these experiences will assist me in working with this Board to reach planning and financial decisions currently and in the future for the continued success of the Crown Mountain Recreation District.
