STEAMBOAT SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) - The city of Steamboat Springs has filed a lawsuit over a historic barn at the base of Steamboat Springs Ski Area city officials say has been neglected for years.

The Steamboat Pilot & Today reports (https://bit.ly/2gzcQ5q ) that the city’s lawsuit claims the developer, RP Steamboat Springs, and the property owner, RCS-Wildhorse Land, LLC, should be maintaining the 88-year-old barn as part of a 2006 development agreement. The city is seeking a court order that would force the defendants to stabilize the barn this winter.

City Attorney Dan Foote said Monday that an engineer who recently inspected the barn said he was surprised it was still standing.

RP Steamboat and RCS-Wildhorse Land deny they are responsible for maintaining the barn. They argue that the development agreement was struck with a previous City Council and is no longer valid.
