I’m Breckenridge Councilmember Kelly Owens. I’m Glad You’re Here!

As a current member of Breckenridge Town Council, I believe I bring a unique skill set to this dedicated group. I’m seeking the opportunity to continue serving our community.

My experience has allowed me to contribute to the discussion on several topics before the Town while remaining focused on why so many individuals and families choose Breckenridge as their home. I share those values and, with your vote this April 7th, will continue to represent them on Town Council.

I hope you’ll take a moment to more about me below, follow me on Facebook or Instagram, or get in touch with me directly. Most of all, thanks for dropping by!

My Background and Experience

My husband Reed and I have lived in the Wellington Neighborhood since 2009 with our three children and a loving border collie named Karhu. Like most families, we make the most of mountain life outdoors in our open space and at the ski area.

We’re a working family and consider ourselves fortunate to be living in a locals’ neighborhood. And, as grateful recipients of the childcare tuition assistance program for two of our children, we find time to give back to a community that’s been so generous to us.

I volunteer much of my free time on the Board of Directors at Little Red Schoolhouse, where we are focused on maintaining high-quality childcare, accessibility, and employee longevity. Additionally, I’ve served on the Summit County Planning Commission since 2015, with special interest in the Countywide Master Plan and short-term rental permitting.

Finally, as a biologist focused on the impacts of private, municipal, and ski area development on both natural resources and the community, I strive to help the project minimize impacts while meeting agreed-upon goals.

Council Goals

On council I will continue to focus on protecting Breckenridge’s authentic character through addressing traffic, implementing innovative workforce housing solutions, and achieving long-term funding for childcare assistance.

I’m also excited about the Town’s commitment to its Climate Action Plan and establishing Breckenridge as a leader in sustainability.
