Chaffee County Commissioners have scheduled an appeal public hearing for the proposed Agastache Village project for 6 p.m. Wednesday, April 3 in the Commissioner’s Meeting Room at 104 Crestone Ave, Salida.

Following a lengthy public hearing for the limited impact review on Nov. 1, 2018, the Chaffee County Planning Commission voted unanimously to prepare a resolution rejecting the application for Agastache Village, a 15-unit tiny home project proposed by Marny Danneberg on her 18.54-acre rural-zoned parcel located at 7440 County Road 146, Salida.

The resolution passed that night, despite repeated attempts by Danneberg’s lawyer, Bill Smith, to interject that they would indeed be willing to consider adding a deed restriction to the property, assuring neighbors that the size of the project would be no larger than the 15 homes. During deliberation, Planning Commission Chair Mike Allen refused to allow Smith to speak to make the deed restriction concession. But meeting attendees around him heard Smith say they could frame it as a deed restriction limiting total tiny housing on the property to 15.
