                                             PURPOSE

                                       BACKGROUND AND NEED
                    Emerald Valley Ranch has a colorful history, with improvements
                    at the site dating back nearly 100 years. Spencer Penrose devel-
                  oped many of the existing buildings at Emerald Valley after he ac-
                  quired the original cabin in 1923. After Penrose's death, the build-
                  ings were operated as a camp by the YMCA, Boys Scouts, and
                  other non-profit groups. Starting in the 1970s, the buildings were
                  operated by the Turley Family as the Emerald Valley Guest Ranch.
                  Broadmoor Hotel, Inc., acquired the buildings from the Turley
                  Family in 2012. In October 2012, the U.S. Forest Service (USFS)
                  issued a 20-year special use permit to operate and maintain Emer-
                  ald Valley Ranch as a guest ranch. Since issuance of the special
                  use permit, Broadmoor Hotel, Inc., has invested in significant up-
                  grades and improvements throughout the resort.
