A 2.86-acre parcel by Horse Gulch trail head was successfully subdivided by a new company, Horse Gulch Holdings LLC, made up of a partnership of pediatricians from Pediatric Partners of the Southwest.
Shortly after on January 16, 2013, the City bought the back 1.6-acre piece of it where they plan on putting in a paved parking lot, according to Kevin Hall, the City’s Director of Natural Lands, Trails and Sustainability.
The contract shows that the City of Durango paid $312,500 for the 1.63-acre parcel.
Also, a paved trail extending from the Animas River Trail is unofficially slated to connect with the new parking lot via a modified culvert underneath 8th Ave and then passing behind Sonic, he said.
The rest of the 2.86-acre lot that was subdivided is owned by Horse Gulch Holdings LLC.
Horse Gulch Holdings LLC is basically a partnership of individuals who currently work at Pediatric Partners of the Southwest who started a limited liability corporation just for the purchase of this property where they plan to put in the new Horse Gulch Health Campus.
The registered agent of Horse Gulch Holdings LLC is Martha Cecile Fraley MD, who is also one of the partners among the group, which includes: Kimberly Caruso MD, Brenda Huffman MD, Amy Hurley MD, Heidi McMillan MD, Kelly Miller MD, and Arthur Zemach MD. Cecile Fraley has not returned this blogger’s email or phone requests for an interview.
The new Horse Gulch Health Campus is said to be a facility that will be used for pediatric health-care services.
