Write a Letter to Eagle County 

IMPORTANT! In order to be read and used by the BOCC, 

every comment must reference a standard or plan. Read the letter writing guide.

For example:

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”


Land use Code guiding THIS Application

Article 4 - Site Development Standards Updated 7/23/2019 

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.

Why donate to challenge Twin Acres? 

WE'VE ALREADY GOTTEN RESULTS!

The Roaring Fork Valley Planning Commission approved Twin Acres

Twin Acres could be operating right now. 

BUT.....

Via public comment, KMOHR, neighbors, and HOAs called attention to (among other things) erroneous water rights information in the application. 

As a result, the Applicant requested to Table the Application to make corrections. 

It is not clear that sufficient water exists. Please donate today. The SAME people who got this application tabled, continue our challenge. Your money will go directly to attorney's fees, mailings, etc. and will be reported on this website.

Your involvement and donations matter!
