Meeting in a two-part session beginning at 9:00 a.m. Tuesday, May 2, the Chaffee Board of County Commissioners (BoCC) will make short work of a consent agenda before moving on to regular agenda items. It will reconvene at 1:30 p.m. for the second portion of the BlueTriton Brands annual report to Chaffee County.

The BoCC will hear an appeal of an administrative decision denying a short-term rental license application to Timber Creek Ranch, located at 8270 CR 160 Unit A, Salida. The property is zoned rural, and the appeal is over the license denied for the 2023 year.

The public hearing consent agenda has only two items both requesting multi-year special event permits (a new addition to the Chaffee Land Use Code). Neither of these have received any public comment against them.  These items, if approved, will include signing authority to the Chair of the Board on the related Resolution(s).

1. Multi-year Special Event Application for the Colorado High School Cycling Race Four- Chalk
Creek Stampede, scheduled for October 6-8, 2023
2. Multi-year Special Event Application for the High Lonesome 100, scheduled for July 21-22, 2023- to also Include a Liquor License and Onsite Camping

The BoCC will hold two executive sessions to receive legal advice on legal questions and strategies. The first executive session involves an employee’s legal fees in an employee’s civil action. The second executive session involves receiving legal advice on questions and strategies involving a land use issue.

The BoCC will take a break before the second portion of the May 2 meeting. The public hearing on the BlueTriton Brands Annual Report will begin at 1:30 p.m.
