Chaffee County commissioners plan to declare this week, April 2-8, as National Public Health week in Chaffee County, calling upon residents to help families, friends, neighbors, co-workers and leaders to better understand the value of public health and join in supporting this year’s national public health goal: Healthiest Nation 2030.

The commissioners’ agenda for the April 3 meeting in Salida includes several contracts, ranging from a History Colorado grant, an agreement with CenturyLink for a line volume plan, and construction documents for a Browns Canyon bridge project and grant proposals to bid awards for county roads 154 and 162 chip seal projects, scheduled to begin in May.

Commissioners will discuss a licensing request by Xcel Energy to use county property to set up what it calls a “lay-down yard” to facilitate equipment work.

The county will consider a boundary-line adjustment for properties along Mt. Princeton Road and release of lot sales restrictions for the Longhorn Ranch Subdivision.

Several resolutions will be reviewed, including the Senter Agricultural Subdivision exemption, the road vacation of C.R. 154 as part of the construction of the Heart of the Rockies Regional Medical Center campus, and a resolution for updates to the Chaffee County Land Use Code for Article 15 concerning animal shelters and a new section (5.2.3.K) addressing heritage water subdivision exemptions.

The commissioners will consider a resolution renaming the Chaffee County Fair Board and establishing the Chaffee County Fair Committee and will consider appointing three members of the Chaffee County Planning Commission to the Salida Regional Planning Commission.

Commissioners will also consider adjourning to executive session to receive legal advice involving “the ACA/Spaulding 106 action.”

The commissioners will meet in the Commissioners Meeting Room in the County Administrative Building, 104 Crestone Ave.
