Meadows up for review, building could start in August

GLENWOOD SPRINGS – Representatives from Miller Weingarten will go before the Planning and Zoning Commission tonight to seek their final approvals for building stores at Glenwood Meadows. “They already got approval for their development permit. Now they’re finalizing their infrastructure design,” Community Development Department director Andrew McGregor said. At Miller Weingarten’s appearance tonight, the company is expected to detail its plan for subdivisions and for the shopping center’s infrastructure. If the plans are approved, the company likely will appear in front of City Council in July and begin building in August. Glenwood Meadows is a large commercial and residential development that will be located between the Community Center and the Municipal Operations Center along the western part of Midland Avenue. It will be the biggest development in the history of Glenwood Springs. The Glenwood Springs City Council approved 490,000 square feet of total commercial and office space, as well as 475 apartments, townhouses and single-family homes.The latest plans call for a November 2005 opening of Target, Lowe’s and other yet-to-be-named stores. Also on the agenda:• The application by the owners of the Glenwood Tramway LLC and Caverns Lodge and Suites LLC for two major development permits and a resubdivision of some land on which they plan to build a hotel will be postponed to a future P & Z meeting, McGregor said. • The commission will consider a request for a special use permit to allow a single-family residence in the city’s hillside preservation overlay zone on Sunny Hills Lane. • The commission will consider a request for a variance from the minimum lot size and condominiumization of an existing four-plex.Contact Greg Massé: 945-8515, ext.
