Garfield County Wants to Hang "Open For Business" Sign With New Land Use Regs
The Garfield County Commissioners made it clear at a recent meeting with land use consultants that the county wants to make it easier for busineeses to "do business" in the county without letting regulations get in the way. An initial assesment by the consultants identified four goals: eliminate unnecessary barriers that may discourage development, strealine development procedures, make the overall code more efficient, and ensure the document is user friendly. GSAR had sent a letter to the County Commissioners recommending that the county's affordable housing guidleines be waived for developers under the new regulations because so much of the market rate properties in the county are affordable, and to help create jobs by spurring construction. The consultants recommended addressing the affordable housing guidelines on a separate track in conjuction with the Garfield County Housing Authority. A draft of the new regulations will be available in late August.
