Cattle Creek Crossing sketch plan on Garfield County planning commission slate
GLENWOOD SPRINGS, Colorado – A sketch plan for Cattle Creek Crossing is set to go before the Garfield County Planning Commission tonight.Commissioners will review Related WestPac’s controversial 979-housing-unit plan for the former Sanders Ranch property between Carbondale and Glenwood Springs at 6:30 p.m. inside the Garfield County commissioner’s meeting room at 108 Eighth St. in Glenwood Springs.The goal behind presenting the plan to the planning commission is to gain feedback for a planned unit development (PUD) for the property that Related WestPac plans to submit to the county in the summer, said Jeanette Darnauer, a spokeswoman for the company.”We are looking forward to hearing some official feedback on the concepts that we have for this smart growth community,” said Darnauer, adding that presenting a sketch plan is an optional part of the development process. The last time the county considered the future of the 282-acre property – in February – the county commissioners decided to remove a former planned unit development (PUD) for the property. They also decided to rezone the property to a suburban-zoning designation – which has the second-highest urban density allowed in the county – instead of the highest density allowed that developer Related WestPac originally sought for the property.The company plans to use feedback from today’s meeting to submit a planned unit development (PUD) and a preliminary plan for the property. Related WestPac can submit a PUD that includes a plan for a higher density than the suburban zoning designation the commissioners approved for the property in February. Any PUD or other plans for the property would require commissioners’ approval. Darnauer added that comments made by residents and commissioners at previous meetings may be “considered for inclusion” into the company’s PUD. Contact Phillip Yates: firstname.lastname@example.org

Basalt town government officials learned from Waste Management that it will require a $120,000 subsidy to keep a recycling drop-off site in Willits operating in 2020. That’s double the subsidy of last year. It reflects the depressed market for recycled materials.
