One public hearing was for a rezone of a .33-acre parcel from the rural residential to the highway commercial zone, located at 1341 Arnel Lane. The property was a split zone, with the split running through a triplex on the property. Staff recommended postponing action on the rezone request until a legal review of the property is complete. The planning commission voted unanimously to forward a recommendation that the Grand County Council deny the rezone.
The other hearing was for a re-plat at Sorrel River Ranch to facilitate the development of an adventure center and employee housing. The request did not involve a net change in the developable acreage. Staff recommended approval. The planning commission agreed, and voted to forward a favorable recommendation to the county council in a 5-1 vote, with Rachel Nelson opposed and Kevin Walker abstaining.
