Eagle County Land Use Regulations Update

KMOHR's Mission is participating in the Land Use Code Update

......to insure that zoning matters that directly impact MO Heights preserve the current zoning density; 

strengthen provisions to insure that commercial endeavors are not permissible; and 

give additional rights to those opposed to changes in land use during hearings.

Eagle County land-use project is must-see TV

"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.
