Avon to revise town’s vesting rights regulations

Daily staff report
Avon, CO Colorado

AVON, Colorado ” On Tuesday, the Avon Town Council approved a motion to initiate revisions to the Town’s “vested rights” regulations.

Vested rights are granted to developers for a certain time period to guarantee a certain aspect of their development project, like a walking path or a specific design feature, for example.

Avon’s vested rights regulations have a five year maximum. In order to make future development more flexible, and in part because of a recent lawsuit against the town pertaining to vested rights, Town Manager Larry Brooks said the council will consider changing the length of guarantees in the ordinance. It will make the ordinance so that the town will deal with projects on a case by case basis, he said.

The proposal will go before the Planning and Zoning Commission at its meeting on Jan. 20, then the Town Council will discuss the ordinance at its meetings this month and in February.

Brooks said public hearings before Planning and Zoning and the Town Council will occur throughout the process.
