On May 18, during their regular meeting, the Salida City Council will discuss Ordinance 2021-08; the First Reading for a major impact review for the mixed-use property known as Jane’s Place. Council may also set a Second Reading and public hearing for the ordinance.

With multiple upcoming events, the consent agenda is packed with possible approval of FIBArk, Sunfest, Ark Valley Pride and Bluegrass on the Arkansas. All of these are listed as special events and the council will vote whether to approve each event plan, considering anticipated health regulations.

New business items include Resolution 2021-15 which, if approved would establish a budget amendment and appropriations by fund for the city’s operations for 2021. An amendment to the 2021 budget is deemed to be necessary to accommodate planned changes in revenues and expenses.

Also included in new business items is a discussion surrounding an improvements agreement for the Angelview Condominiums. The five-lot minor subdivision for Angelview was approved by the Planning Commission on July 15, 2016, and replated via Planning Commission approval on January 22, 2018. The applicant, Harder-Diesslin Holdings, LLC, has proceeded with development of Lots One and Two in conformance with the R-3 zoning that is on the site and is in the process of developing Lots 3A and 3B.

The agreement sets forth the requirements for the developer to complete the public improvements along Lots 3A and 3B and within parts of Shepherd Road, which includes water and wastewater mains, and their subsequent dedication to the city.

Council will also discuss the Central Mountain Resilient Entrepreneur Ecosystem grant application which aspires to create a network of resources to support new start-up companies and expand services around innovative approaches to housing, healthcare, childcare, and workforce development. This would include new training programs, assistance with access to financial resources, mentoring for new start-ups, collaborative meetings, and an assessment of the infrastructure available for entrepreneurs and start-ups here in Chaffee County.  The grant application involves the county and other municipalities and requests funding from the City of Salida for their share of funding.

Due to current health guidelines, the meeting will have limited in-person attendance for council and city staff members. Community members are encouraged to watch the meeting via GoToWebinar or on the City’s YouTube Channel. Click here to preregister.
