On the agenda for the 6 p.m. Feb. 19 Salida City Council session are two topics that could increase the city’s ability to provide workforce housing.
Council will take a series of legal steps to complete the annexation of 7.5 acres at 786 Scott St., known as the Treat-Mesch annexation. The process of moving the land from Chaffee County to the City of Salida is a long one. The process during the Feb. 29 council session to complete the annexation, begins with a resolution approving the agreement, followed by a public hearing on the second read of an ordinance changing the zoning of the land to R-3 (high-density residential).
A second public hearing will address the rezoning of 19.1 acres located at 6507 CR 102 from RMU (residential mixed-use) to R-4, or manufactured housing residential.
Under new business, the council will consider an appeal of the Administrator Decision regarding Water and Sewer Development fees for 1453 K Street.
In a 3 p.m. work session in council chambers preceding their regular meeting, council members will receive a presentation by Chief of Police Russ Johnson, be introduced to the new staff of the Salida Fire Dept. and have a facilitated conversation on quasi-judicial and ex-parte issues lead by facilitator Nina Williams.
