Sept. 14, 2015 – The Roaring Fork Valley Regional Planning Commission will continue review of the Tree Farm Planned Unit Development (PUD) preliminary plan during its regular meeting on Sept. 17. An executive session is scheduled for 3:30 p.m. The public hearing will begin at 4 p.m. at the El Jebel Community Center, 0020 Eagle County Drive in El Jebel.

Thursday’s meeting will include the continued review of the PUD Guide, which is anticipated to take approximately two hours. Public comment will take place immediately following the discussion.

Following public comment, the planning commission will identify any outstanding issues requiring additional review or resolution by the applicant or county staff. If time permits, the commission may begin its deliberations.
