Greyhound seeks permit for new bus station

GLENWOOD SPRINGS ” Greyhound Bus Lines is looking to move its bus stop into the shadows of City Hall.

Representatives from the bus company are scheduled to appear in front of the Glenwood Springs Planning and Zoning Commission tonight.

The company wants a minor development permit to convert part of the old railroad building, located at the back of the parking lot due west of City Hall, into a bus station.

If the permit is approved, Greyhound will fix up the building and pay the city rent.

One concern about converting that area to a bus station is the potential loss of parking spaces, city planner Jill Peterson said. But by using some creativity, Peterson said the spaces could be relocated.

“We think we can make some arrangements so we’re not losing too many spaces,” she said.

Even if Greyhound eventually gets the permit, the bus station likely will be temporary. Greyhound spokesman Steve Hatcher has said the company expects to move into the regional transit center that’s planned for the city’s confluence area.

Greyhound has moved to area transit centers in Vail, Summit County and Steamboat Springs, Hatcher said.

The application will go before the planning commission tonight during their regular meeting at 6 p.m.

Also on the agenda:

– Consideration of a request for a special use permit for a duplex within the Hillside Preservation Overlay Zone at 3331 and 3333 Hager Lane.

– Community Development Department director’s update.
