As previously reported by Ark Valley Voice, on June 22 the Salida Planning Commission passed the recommendation to the City Council along with the vacation of a portion of East Crestone Avenue right-of-way at its intersection with West Third Street. The move is one of many steps underlying a workforce housing project proposed by Chaffee Housing Trust.

Vacation and rezoning have been a hot topic for many in the community. This will be the first reading of the ordinances.  A motion to approve would pass these proposals to a second reading and a public hearing, with those actions tentatively scheduled for August 4, 2020.

The council will also discuss the city’s Communications Plan which will help community members to receive timely, consistent, and proactive communication with the City.

Also, on the agenda is a declaration of state of local emergency action plan implementation. The meeting will be held via GoToMeeting. To pre-register click here.
