IMPORTANT! In order to be read and used by the BOCC,
every comment must reference a standard or plan.
Comment: Twin Acres is a commercial recreational activity that would be incompatible with residential and agricultural uses in the area. It would interfere with the quiet enjoyment of residential neighborhoods in the area. The requirements of Eagle County MidValley Area Community Plan are not met by the application.
Reference: Policy 1.1.4, Recommend strategies: "Strive to preclude new uses that would interfere with the quiet enjoyment of residential neighborhoods in the area” AND "Strive to preclude non-agricultural commercial activities and recreational activities that would be incompatible with residential and agricultural uses in the area”
Know the process
The Eagle County staff report for the BOCC hearing will contain staff's recommended motions. These are typically those identified in the staff report that was presented to the Planning Commission along with their motion and any conditions that the Planning Commission included.
The Board has discretion to reach different findings, a different conclusion, different conditions, or even table consideration to a future date.
In reaching a different conclusion the Board would need to identify standards from the regulations which lead them to that conclusion.
Board could decide to include a wide variety of different changes to the proposal such as reducing or expanding hours of operation, number of horses, number of events, size & location of buildings, etc.
Just because staff is recommending specific findings, conclusions and motions does not mean that the Board has to agree. I hope that helps.
