Apparently they are using the entire Virus/Pandemic/Economic shutdown to reframe their concept going forward into an environmentally and socially responsible development. Can't totally blame them for trying to reimage themselves from this event. They aren't the only closed resort trying to restart itself out of this time period (Saddleback and Timberline Mountain in W.VA come to mind).

While it is a admirable attempt to lower the environmental impact of the project, it is still the same story in the same place, only now the economy is a disaster. This was never going to happen before COVID-19. COVID-19 just eliminated that .0001% chance that LO was hanging onto.
