Building Update as of August 4
The public hearing before the Jefferson County Planning Commission takes place 6:15 PM, August 7th. We received the staff report that will go to the Planning Commission itself; the staff is recommending approval. Whatever recommendation the Planning Commission makes will be passed onto the Board of Commissioners and that board will hold its public hearing beginning on the morning of August 27. It would be helpful if some DCC members are on hand at both hearings to show support for the project, particularly residents of Jefferson County, or members working in the county.
The Planning Commission Hearing will be held at 6:15PM on Wednesday, August 7, 2013 in Hearing Room One, Jefferson County Administration and Courts Facility, 100 Jefferson County Parkway, Golden, CO 80419. The hearing before the Board of County Commissioners will be held on Tuesday, August 27, 2013 at 8:00AM in the same location as the PC hearing.
On Thursday, August 1st, we formally submitted the Site Development Plan (SDP), which defines the location of the building, the parking lot, sidewalks, drives, etc. This latest submittal required another mailing to neighbors and the posting of more notice signs on the property. However, no hearings are required and the public can submit comments to the Planning & Zoning staff. Ultimately the plan is reviewed, and hopefully approved, by the Zoning Administer. The final step in the overall process will be the approval of the construction plans themselves.
