First county planning meeting for Dotsero on tap; Eagle-Vail RFQ nets 20 firms

June 24, 2009 — The first in a series of meetings intended to guide the creation of a new community plan for the Dotsero area will take place from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m., Thursday, June 25 in the Gypsum Town Council Chambers, located at 50 Lundgren Blvd. in Gypsum. Members of the public are encouraged to attend.

As a chapter of Eagle County’s Comprehensive Plan, the Dotsero Area Community Plan will provide information and policies to help guide land use and site design in the greater Dotsero area.

According to Cliff Simonton, senior planner for Eagle County, input from property owners and concerned citizens will be invaluable.

“We will be striving to create a plan that is as realistic and comprehensive as possible,” said Simonton. “County staff will provide a brief presentation and will then facilitate a discussion designed to identify opportunities, constraints, desires and concerns in the area.”

Additional community meetings are planned for later in the summer to review alternatives and to further refine goals and policies to be included in the plan. A working draft of the document is expected to be complete by the end of the year.

Contact Simonton at (970) 328-8751 or at for more information.
