Multi-passenger vans will bring visitors to the property from the Front Range and to recreational activities. Seasonal employees will reside on the property to reduce vehicle trips.

Additional information regarding the specifics of this application is available for public inspection in the Development Services Office, 104 Crestone Ave. Salida or at the Buena Vista Annex, 112 Linderman Ave and on the Chaffee County web page at on the Planning & Zoning home page.  All interested persons are encouraged to attend one of the public hearings or submit a statement with opinions and comments on the proposed land use change. 

Please note that it is inappropriate to personally contact individual County Commissioners or Planning Commission members while an application is pending.  Such contact is considered ex parte communication and will have to be disclosed as part of the public hearings on the matter.  If you have any concerns, you should contact staff, write a letter or present your concerns at the public meeting so your comments can be made part of the record.  Also, note that if you use a representative to present your comments, it is more persuasive if you provide written authorization for that person to represent you.

Approval of the subject application or development may result in the establishment of a vested property right.
