Report from the February 13th Avon Town Council Meeting
Colorado World Resorts property discussed
Avon, CO – The Avon Town Council held a regular meeting on February 13th. Highlights of the meeting include the following:
- Council denied First Reading of Ordinance 18-01, denying a Rezoning Application for the Folson Property from Planned Unit Development (PUD) to the Mixed-Commercial (MC) and Open Space, Landscaping, and Drainage (OLD) zone districts. The Folson property was annexed 1985 and has retained PUD zoning status, without an approved PUD development plan. Past proposals were reviewed by the Planning and Zoning Commission (PZC) in 1997, 2006, and 2007, however, no zoning application was ever fully processed or approved by the Town. Last summer staff was approached by the prospective new owners of the property to determine next steps in bringing back a proposal. The development code no longer offers PUD as an optional standalone zone district classification; therefore, an underlying zone district and PUD overlay were recommended to proceed through a review process.
- A Public Hearing was held for Preliminary PUD Application, Colorado World Resorts, Folson Property. Council denied the Findings of Fact and Record of Decision, thereby denying the Preliminary PUD Application for Colorado World Resorts.
