Avon delays Traer Creek vote
Ryan Summerlin October 24, 2012
AVON, Colorado – The end may be in sight for the long-running dispute between the town of Avon and the developers of the Village at Avon.
The Avon Town Council Tuesday gave itself two weeks for staff and the attorneys involved to review the latest load of documents from the developers, and set a special meeting Nov. 7. That meeting may bring a second-reading vote on an ordinance that’s key to a settlement of two lawsuits between the town and developers. The council gave first-reading approval to the ordinance at its Oct. 9 meeting.
The ordinance, which makes numerous changes to the original land use agreement with the Village at Avon – passed in 1998 – is the key to a settlement announced in October of last year.
Hammering out the details of that settlement has generated thousands of pages of documents back and forth between the parties.
Council members told the developers that the latest documents will be the basis of a staff and legal review, and may be subject to some changes. That review, and possible changes, will be discussed Nov. 7
Council member Chris Evans said he expects the council to vote the ordinance up or down at that meeting.
“I want to get this done,” he said.
