Golf course design up for council review

Greg MassPost Independent Staff

GLENWOOD SPRINGS – A conceptual design for the proposed 18-hole golf course will be considered Thursday by City Council. The golf course, planned for the city’s Hillside Preservation Overlay Zone district at the foot of Red Mountain, will require a major development permit and a special review before it’s built. In a memo, city planner Patti Haefli advised council members to address mitigation of geologic hazards, dust control, irrigation, wildlife impacts, residential impacts and aesthetic concerns. The review will not require formal action by council, but council members can provide suggestions on how to improve the application. The next step after council’s conceptual review is placing the design in front of the Planning and Zoning Commission. Also on the agenda for the 6:30 p.m. meeting, City Council will:-Present a plaque to the Red Cross. -Award a bid for the 23rd Street intersection improvement project. -Discuss a letter to the Roaring Fork Transportation Authority about trail development. -Consider the Corridor Investment Study. -Be presented with the 2004 preliminary budget. Starting at 3 p.m., council will hold an executive session to interview municipal judge candidates.
