In an effort to increase opportunities for citizens to participate, the Estes Valley Planning Commission will move its meetings from afternoons to evenings beginning May 21. The Planning Commission will meet at 6 p.m. on the third Tuesday of each month in the Town Board Room of the Town Hall, 170 MacGregor Ave. Study sessions are held based on agenda items and will generally take place at 3:30 p.m. and generally in Rooms 202 and 203 of Town Hall. Meeting agendas and packets are posted the week prior to each meeting at www.estes.org/boardsandmeetings. Meetings are streamed and recorded at www.estes.org/videos.
After a trial period of six months, the Planning Commission will evaluate the evening format in November and adjust the times, if necessary.
The Estes Valley Planning Commission is a seven-member Town/County commission that reviews development proposals and subdivision proposals within the Estes Valley, both inside and outside the Town of Estes Park limits. The 6 p.m. meeting of the Planning Commission begins with an opportunity for residents to address the Planning Commission on any general topic of interest. Study session agendas do not include public comment.
