Haymeadow vote won’t happen until August

Enterprise staff report

Eagle’s voters will decide the future of the Haymeadow project, just not as soon as originally thought.

Haymeadow, a 837-unit residential development proposed at the 660-acre parcel located just south of the Eagle Pool and Ice Rink property, will go to a referendum vote because the town received petitions containing 373 signatures calling for a citizen referendum for Haymeadow. Eagle Town Clerk Sarah Braucht certified that 310 of the signatures were valid, exceeding threshold of 214 valid signatures required to refer the issue to a municipal election. The Eagle Town Board approved the Haymeadow proposal in a 6-1 vote on March 25.

Initially, town officials thought they could schedule the referendum as soon as July 1, but a more thorough examination of statutes governing such an election revealed the earliest dates available for the special election would be Aug. 12 though Sept. 30. A resolution setting the date and the referendum ballot language can be approved by the Eagle Town Board at its June 10 meeting.

New Solar Vail apartments open with 65 units

Those units are all deed-restricted, meaning that only people who work an annual average of 30 hours per week can live there. That keeps the apartments out of the short-term rental pool and available to local residents.
