Basalt, midvalley planning commissions to meet today

Staff report

The planning commissions for Basalt and the Roaring Fork Valley portion of Eagle County will meet jointly to discuss midvalley land use Thursday.

The meeting is part of a series of workshops the Roaring Fork Valley Regional Planning Commission is holding in a review of the Mid-Valley Area Community Plan.

Basalt officials have pressed Eagle County to strengthen an agreement on land use matters in areas of shared interest. Eagle County responded that the agreement has legal problems. The future of the agreement remains unsettled.

The meeting will begin at 5:30 p.m. at the Eagle County Community Center next to Crown Mountain Park in El Jebel. The workshop is scheduled to run at least two hours. Community members are encouraged to join at any time. There will be opportunity for public input.

The March 15 meeting will examine the Highway 82 areas. The April 5 meeting will look at the Emma and Fryingpan Valley neighborhoods. The April 19 meeting will include an examination of final draft revisions to the land use plan.
