The Chaffee Board of County Commissioners (BoCC) will begin the regular agenda for its 9:00 a.m. Tuesday, July 5 meeting with an executive session to receive legal advice on issues related to the Bale Agricultural Ditch, followed by a legal update regarding the “2022 Renewal” special event, produced by Bonfire Entertainment, scheduled for Sept. 24-25 at The Meadows on the edge of Buena Vista.

Among regularly scheduled items are several land-use agenda items ranging from heritage water subdivisions to plat amendments.

They will review the Bolin Heritage Water Subdivision Exemption application to subdivide 16.14 acres into two lots of 14.14 acres (Tract 1, Heritage Water tract) and 2.00 acres (Tract 2). The property has two existing wells, a domestic well (Permit #324846) and an in-house well (Permit #77318).

Also on their review agenda is the Maier Plat Amendment, Lot 22, Centerville Ranch Major Subdivision, Phase1, Filing 1. Applicants: Eric & Brenda Maier, 11256 Centerville Way, Nathrop are applying to extend a portion of the building envelope 20 feet further north in order to locate the house farther back from the road, and to reduce visual impact in this rural zone.

Next on the agenda is the Bingham Plat Amendment, Lot 12, Block C, Sunshine Acres Subdivision, a parcel at 16106 Rocky Mountain Road, Maysville, that is zoned rural commercial/recreational (RCR) and owned by Shannon Bingham. The request is to vacate the unused 10-foot wide utility easement that extends across a ravine on the property. The application includes an email from Xcel Energy regarding the vacation of the easement, along with testimony from the applicant, that CenturyLink and Atmos Energy do not have utilities located in the easement.

The BoCC will next review the Ridley Heritage Water Subdivision Exemption, located at 11407 County Road 190 N, Salida. Applicants: Dennis and Nancy J. Skye Ridley have applied to subdivide this residential-zoned parcel of  10.00 acres into two tracts of 5.00 acres each. Tract 1 has the existing house and domestic well (Permit #163176-A). Tract 2 is vacant and will be served by an augmented well and On-site Wastewater Treatment System (OWTS). The site is accessed by crossing two other properties in a combination of county road and access easements on CR 190.

Next on the agenda is a review of the Shaw Ranch Major Subdivision Final Plat; a review that has already been continued twice: from May 10, and June 14 2022. Applicants: JTS Development, LLC proposed to subdivide 74.3 acres into eight (8) lots ranging in size from 2.4 acres to 36.6 acres, in three phases. Wells and on-site wastewater treatment systems will serve the property. The property has a 100-year floodplain associated with Green Creek along CR 221, and the South Arkansas River along the northern boundary.

The BoCC will consider the BLM Invitation to Comment on the Resource Management Plan Amendment as a Cooperating Agency, and whether to accept the Federal Land Policy Management Act (FLPMA) Right of Way (ROW) and  Temporary ROW for County Road 397 and FLPMA ROW Grant for CR’s 108, 194, 304, 398-C, 272, 271, 261-G, and 386. They will also consider renewal of the Retail Marijuana OPC License for Antero Sciences (continued from June 21, 2022)
