Public comment sought on proposed land use regulation changes

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

May 20, 2019 - Eagle County’s Community Development Department has launched a process to make interim updates to its land use regulations, prior to a full rewrite scheduled to begin later this year. 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 state and federal requirements.

All interested community members are encouraged to review the proposed changes at www.eaglecounty.us/Planning/Active_Land_Use_Applications. The public comment and referral period is underway now through June 17. Comments may be submitted to kris.valdez@eaglecounty.us.

Public meetings are scheduled as follows:

Eagle County Planning Commission Work Session
May 22 at 3 p.m. in the Eagle County Room, 500 Broadway in Eagle

Roaring Fork Valley Regional Planning Commission Work Session

May 30 at 2:30 p.m. in the Mt. Sopris Room, 0020 Eagle County Drive in El Jebel

All meetings will include the opportunity for public comment. In addition, 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 this summer. The focus of the rewrite 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
