It’s been a long road, but the Cozart Major Subdivision preliminary/final plat, was approved to move to a final resolution in their Chaffee County Commissioners Jan. 15 regular meeting. The decision, which had been continued from their Dec. 18 meeting, was delayed while additions soil stability study and a water flow test for potential water off Weldon Creek were completed.
The development, located at 14300 U.S. 50 on 50,68 acres of rural-zoned land that will be divided into eight lots. It was approved last week during the Chaffee County Planning Commission, which had requested the additional studies, during their Jan. 8 special meeting.
No additional comments were made during the public hearing. Duane Cozart, principal in the Weldon Investments LLC, which is the business entity proposing the project, indicated that unless there were additional questions, he had done everything that had been asked of him by the county and had nothing more to add. “All the things the planning commission brought up – they’re all necessary – we’re good with this,” said Cozart.
“This applicant has been very responsive,” said Planning Manager Jon Roorda.
“Yes, and patient I might add,” said Chair Greg Felt.
Commissioner Keith Baker made the motion to move the project to county resolution, Commissioner Rusty Granzella seconded it and it passed unanimously. The resolution will come before commissioners at their Feb. 5 meeting.
