Government Tracker " Avon Town Council 4/25/2006

How they voted: All members were appointed

What they said: Todd Goulding and Andrew Lane were awarded two-year terms, while Julia Foster got a one-year term. Chris Evans was reappointed to a one-year term, and Terry Smith and Phil Stuve received additional two-year terms.

What this means to you: The Planning and Zoning Commission serves at a planning commission, zoning board of adjustment and a design review board. The commission also adopts the comprehensive plan and provides plans and objectives for the physical development of Avon.

What’s next: New terms began May 1.

What they said: The counselors reviewed applications from three Battle Mountain High School seniors to see which man and woman will be the recipients of two $1,000 scholarships. Eligible applicants had to be a resident of Avon, an Avon employee or the child of an Avon employee. The student also had to have a varsity letter and a GPA of 3.75.

What this means to you: Two students will receive a bit of help attaining higher education, thus upping the education level of the valley.

What’s next: The awards ceremony will be 7 p.m. Tuesday, May 16 at the Vilar Center in Beaver Creek.

What they said: While a hearing date hasn’t been nailed down, Avon officials will likely appear before the Colorado Water Conservation Board in July, September or November to secure a water right. Avon asked for a later date so it could iron out some design details of the water park that may be built under Bob the Bridge. Although enough water exists in Avon’s stretch of the Eagle River now, Avon wants a water right to guarantee water in the future. So far Avon has secured an Eagle County Floodplain Permit and expects to have an Army Corps of Engineers 404 Permit soon.

What this means to you: Eventually, Avon will get a whitewater kayak park.

What’s next: Construction is scheduled to begin in August.
