On the review agenda are two new projects and two previously-reviewed minor developments on the Planning Commission’s consent agenda:

  • The Box Minor Subdivision would subdivide Lot 31 of Mt. Harvard Valley Development of 5.95 acres into two (2) lots with the minimum being 2.25 acres. The lot was amended from the original subdivision lot of 2.2 acres by two boundary line adjustments. Further development of either lot is restricted by steep slopes and public land.
  • The Dvorak-Kopka Minor Subdivision Sketch Plan, on rural land located at 7440 CR 146, Salida would subdivide 15.02 acres into two (2) lots with the minimum being 2.02 acres.  Wells and on-site wastewater treatment systems will serve the property.

The regular agenda will begin with a review of the Pikul Major Subdivision Sketch Plan, to be located at 29329 CR 361, Buena Vista. The residentially-zoned proposal, which is the former site of the Sleeping Indian Trailer Park, would subdivide three parcels totaling 12.28 acres into a total of six lots between 2.02 and 2.08 acres in size.

Lots 1, 5 & 6 have existing dwelling units that will remain. Wells and on-site wastewater treatment systems will serve the property.

The owners are in the process of demolishing the trailers and disposing of them in the county landfill. Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) has approved an abandonment of the on-site wastewater treatment system.

The Planning commission will move on to review of a major subdivision sketch plan for the Divided Sky Estates, owned by Meaghan Richmond. The proposal for the residential parcel located at 6025 Archery Lane, Salida includes 16 lots on 38.36 acres. Individual wells and on-site wastewater treatment systems would serve the new lots.
