Read the presentation Slides.

 The meeting has been scheduled as a work session with the planning commission.  

We plan to provide an overview of the issue papers that were presented to the Board and to discuss next steps in terms of the development of the revised code. Following any questions and/or comments by the planning commission, I anticipate that the planning commission will open the meeting to public comment.  Please keep in mind that the purpose of this work session is to highlight and discuss general policy issues that may be incorporated into the revised ECLUR, and that there will be many opportunities for public comment as we move forward with the actual drafting process.

"Commissioner Jeanne McQueeney noted she’s talked with people who want the county to expand its current standard of dual access points for new developments. But Messenger cautioned against putting too many new roads into rural areas, and recommended giving the county’s engineering department more responsibility for road standards."

Code rewrite work sessions will continue into December

"Stewardship was a big part of the latest update to the Eagle County Board of Commissioners about rewriting Eagle County land use regulations. Todd Messenger, an attorney with Fairfield and Woods, is working on that rewrite. Messenger and Assistant County Attorney Beth Oliver provided that update, which focused in part on how land use policy can affect stewardship."

"Rural approaches should limit exposures to hazards, preserve natural resources, and mitigate risks by severely limiting new development, encouraging long-term resource conservation, avoiding geo-hazards, and facilitating contextually-appropriate economic opportunities." .....From the slides, Meeting 5.
