Board Appointments

The BCC approved the appointment of Elise Lowe-Vaughn to the Tri-County Workforce Board.


This board provides quality assurance and recommended policy guidance for Workforce Investment Act programs operated by the county. It is also responsible for identifying the region's workforce development needs and for the creation of a comprehensive strategy and policy framework to meet the workforce development needs of employers. 


Board OK's Resolution for Special Use

The BCC adopted a resolution that outlines a Special Use for applicant Activation Ministries International. It passed in a two to one vote with Commissioner Faye Griffin voting no. The special use will allow for future expansion of the applicant's church located on Lookout Mountain Road.


The Planning Commission had public hearings on Feb. 1 and 8 and the BCC had a public hearing on Feb. 28 on this case. At the Feb. 28 hearing, the BCC had directed the County Attorney to prepare a resolution, which was approved at the March 13 hearing.


For more details, please see the Feb. 28 & March 6 BCC Actions.

Airport Receives $1.3 Million Grant

Plane landing at Rocky Mountain Metropolitan AirportThe BCC approved a $1,337,500 Colorado Discretionary Aviation Grant (CDAG) for the Rocky Mountain Metropolitan Airport. The grant is from the Colorado Department of Transportation - Aeronautics Division.


The grant is a state match on the Federal Aviation Administration's (FAA) AIP project, which includes land acquisition and utility work for the Runway Safety Area Enhancement Project and also airfield pavement maintenance.

Applicant Can Apply for Rezone

At the March 13 BCC hearing, the board determined that the Foothills Park and Recreation District is eligible to apply for a rezone for two parcels of land it owns at the northeast and northwest corner of Wadsworth Boulevard and Coal Mine Avenue.


The land is currently zoned as open space within a Planned Development, but the applicant has expressed an interest in applying to rezone the parcels for other land uses. It was determined that the open space designation is not warranted since the land didn't have criteria such as significant or desirable wildlife habitat or migration routes; rare or unusual vegetation or ecosystems; remarkable geological features such as rock outcrops or formations; and historic resources.


If the applicant does decide to apply for the rezone, the case will go before the Planning Commission and the Board of County Commissioners. Both board hearings are open to the public.
