Draft of Avon development code can be reviewed

Daily staff report
Vail, CO Colorado

AVON – The latest version of the proposed Avon Development Code will be available for public review Friday.

This edition includes all of the revisions agreed to by the Town Council since they began reviewing the document and receiving citizen input in July. A copy of the code will be posted on the Town’s website at http://www.avon.org/landusecode.

The Avon Planning and Zoning Commission recommended adoption of the Code on July 7. The public hearing will continue and the council’s first reading of an ordinance adopting the Code is scheduled for Sept. 28. The public may submit written comments to the council by Sept. 23 to newcode@avon.org.–

The proposed Development Code was recommended by the 2006 Avon Comprehensive Plan and is intended to replace the town’s existing 30-year old zoning and subdivision regulations. The new code simplifies the land use process, provides for clear and predictable development outcomes, and is a means of achieving the town’s goals for a vibrant, walkable town-core and more sustainable development practices.
