More comp plan meetings in April

Garfield County is planning a third round of public meetings in early April to gather residents’ ideas and input concerning an ongoing update to the county’s comprehensive land-use plan.

The meetings are scheduled for April 5, 6 and 7 at different towns around the county, and the planners in charge are hoping to attract a broadly representative group of business owners, homeowners, ranchers and others to take part.

In addition, according to long-range planner Tamra Allen, the county has posted the second in a series of three online surveys on a special website, “for anyone interested in providing feedback on critical land use issues in the county,” Allen wrote in a press release.

To participate in the online survey, visit the Comprehensive Plan website at and start the process.

Visitors to the site also can get access to the most current information about the planning process, and use the website to sign up for automatic updates and periodic newsletters.

The April “Community Dialogue meetings,” Allen noted, are scheduled for April 5 at the county Health and Human Services building in Rifle and at the city of New Castle Community Center; April 6 at the Glenwood Springs Community Center and at the Burning Mountains Fire Protection District headquarters in Silt; and April 7 at the Carbondale Town Hall and at the Battlement Mesa Activity Center, located near the town of Parachute.

All of the meetings are scheduled to start at 6 p.m. and last until 8:30 p.m.

“Your input and opinions are valued as the county continues to plan for its future,” Allen wrote in the press release.

Information also is available through the Garfield County Building and Planning Department at (970) 945-8212, or by e-mailing tallen@garfield-county. com.
