The Poncha Springs Board of Trustees (BoT) will convene on Monday, August 28, for their monthly meeting.
The board plans to review bids submitted by contractors in response to the town’s request for proposals (RFP) regarding potential recreation spaces within the municipality.
Back in June, the Planning and Zoning Committee put out an RFP for park and open space ideas, prompted by the acquisition of a 30-acre parcel of land just north of CR 120.
Among the proposals that have been submitted to the town thus far are a bid from KLJ Engineering for $130,000 to conduct land surveying and assess potential usage opportunities. The town has also heard a presentation from the nonprofit group Ice Rink for Chaffee County, who proposed the placement of an outdoor ice rink somewhere on the 30-acre land plot.
KLJ Engineering is already engaged in one project for the town of Poncha Springs, as the contracting firm behind the Highway 50 corridor and intersection redesign. After having the results of a town survey confirmed, they are ready to step into the grant-writing stage of their project. A representative from KLJ will be at Monday’s meeting to discuss grant writing procedures and opportunities with the board.
Also on the agenda will also be a handful of land designation and building envelope matters to be discussed, followed by the possible clarification of the Land Use Code and a discussion on this year’s capital projects. A budget discussion of 2024 Capital Projects is also scheduled.
An executive session is also planned, for a conference under Section 24-6-402(4)(f)(I), C.R.S. for the purpose of consideration of a personnel matter: Town Administrator Vacancy.
The board meets on the fourth Monday of each month and the meeting’s start time is set for 6:30 p.m. at the Poncha Springs Town Hall, 333 Burnett Ave.
Board meetings are open to the public. Those interested in attending can do so either in person or on Zoom (click here for the Zoom link).
