Eagle County will review proposals

Aspen Times Staff Report
Aspen, CO Colorado

EL JEBEL ” A major development application, a zoning change and a huge berm will be reviewed by the Eagle County Commissioners in a special appearance in El Jebel Tuesday.

The three county commissioners will hold their special meeting at the Eagle County office building and El Jebel Community Center from 2 to 4 p.m. First on the agenda is the rezoning of Flat Water Ranch, north of Ruedi Reservoir. There is a proposal for a zone change from “rural residential,” which allows a two-acre minimum lot size, to “resource,” which allows a 35-acre minimum lot size.

Next on the agenda is a review of the Mertz berm at 1090 Valley Road. The property owners has applied to construct a 465-foot long berm parallel to a frontage road. The height would vary, with the maximum being 14 feet.

The final issue under consideration is the Crown Mountain Plaza proposal at the former site of the Fitzsimmons Amoco gas station in El Jebel. The application was tabled earlier this year to give the owner time to rework the project after the commissioners decided they couldn’t approve it. The application was for commercial uses on the ground floor, a mix of commercial and residential on the second floor, and residences on the third and fourth floors.
