Planning commissions to continue review of proposed land use regulation changes

Contact: Morgan Beryl, Community Development Director, 970-328-8750 or morgan.beryl@eaglecounty.us   

July 8, 2019 - The Eagle County and Roaring Fork Valley Regional planning commissions will continue their review of interim updates to the county’s land use regulations this week. The proposed amendments are focused on improving internal processes while clarifying expectations for customers; balancing public input procedures by increasing public notice; and bringing regulations into conformance with updated state and federal requirements. The changes are available for review at www.eaglecounty.us/Planning/Active_Land_Use_Applications.

The Eagle County Planning Commission hearing is scheduled for 3 p.m. on July 10 in the Eagle County Room, 500 Broadway in Eagle. The Roaring Fork Valley Regional Planning Commission hearing is set for 2:30 p.m. on July 11 in the Mt. Sopris Room, 0020 Eagle County Drive in El Jebel. Both meetings will include an opportunity for public comment.

At the end of the hearings, it is anticipated both planning commissions will make a recommendation to the Board of County Commissioners on the proposed amendments. The commissioners are scheduled to hear the amendments on July 23.

All meetings will be aired live on Eagle County Government Television, found on channel 18 on both cable providers in the Eagle River Valley; as well as streamed live and archived for on demand viewing at www.ecgtv.com.  

A full land use regulation rewrite will begin soon. The focus will be to make the county’s regulations easier to understand; to incorporate best-practices for protecting the natural environment; and to incentivize important development opportunities for affordable housing, public health and mobility for residents.
