Action to Terminate “Benchmark Covenants” Delayed
Informational meeting slated for November 15th
Avon, CO – The Avon Town Council considered a proposal to terminate the Benchmark Protective Covenants at its October 25, 2016, meeting and decided to delay further consideration until more information can be provided to interested property owners. The Benchmark Protective Covenants are private covenants adopted with the original Benchmark Subdivision Plat for the Town of Avon in 1974. The Covenants address development matters which are addressed in the Town of Avon’s Development Code, Building Code and Sign Code. The Benchmark Protective Covenants require the appointment of a Landowners Committee and a Planning and Architectural Control Committee to adopt regulations, review development and enforce the covenants; however, these committees have not existed or operated for more than 10 years.
Information concerning the Benchmark Protective Covenants can be found on the Town of Avon’s website at www.avon.org/benchmarkcovenants
. An informational meeting will be held at the Avon Town Hall, located at 1 Lake Street, at 2:00 p.m. on November 15, 2016. The Town Council requested a table comparing the Benchmark Protective Covenants to Avon’s current development regulations be prepared by Town Attorney Eric Heil. The table and additional information will be included on the Town’s website by Friday, November 4, 2016.
