Carbondale trustees to hear Overlook proposal

CARBONDALE, Colorado The planned Overlook Neighborhood development goes before the Carbondale Board of Trustees tonight for the first of what will likely be several meetings.A public hearing on the plan for more than 150 residential units, a possible 50-room hotel and 40,000 square feet of commercial space is tentatively scheduled to open at 8 p.m. Tonights meeting begins at 6:30 p.m. at Carbondale Town Hall, 511 Colorado Ave.The towns planning and zoning commission (P&Z), after a series of meetings, voted 5-1 in March recommending approval of the project being put forth by CDALE LLC.The development company is led by John Foulkrod, a Carbondale town council member who has indicated he will recuse himself from the hearing process.That leaves a decision on his plan to rezone and redevelop the 13-acre former Mid-Continent Mine Services property in the center of town, which is now zoned for industrial uses, up to the remaining six council members. Among the changes to the original development plan forwarded by P&Z was a reduction in the number of residential units to 155 from 170 (not including the hotel). If the hotel is not built, developers are asking for the right to build an additional 35 multifamily residential units.P&Z recommended a separate special use permit review in that case, but encouraged the developer to consider some other type of community facility if the hotel is not built, such as a conference center.Contact John Stroud:
