Summit County Relocation Information

What would people who are relocating to Summit County and West Grand County like to know about?  I have tried to put myself in your shoes (which incidentally when I moved here in 1978, I had to buy in Denver because there was no shoe store).  Well, a lot has changed since then.  The following is a list of services which I hope will help both recent and future additions to the population.  Besides all the businesses I have listed here, we have a multitude of great restaurants, bars/pubs/nightclubs, and specialty shops.  There are also many professional and trades people which make their homes in Summit County, such as architects, custom home builders, lawyers, accountants, plumbers, electricians, landscapers etc.  I hope you find this information helpful.
