The Delta County Planning Department announced that the joint meeting of the Upper North Fork Area Planning Advisory Committee and the Delta County Planning Commission to hear comments on a land use change application by Paonia Holdings, LLC, and representative Mark Levin has been rescheduled to June 21, at Paonia Town Hall.
Paonia Holdings has applied for a land use change to "commercial and light industrial" under Delta County's Specific Development Regulations, for parcels located at 41322 and 41402 Hwy. 133, about one mile north of Paonia. The roughly 1.5-mile long strip of land is currently owned by Bowie Resources, LLC, and is a former coal load-out site.
As part of the application Paonia Holdings is requesting that three parcels on Stevens Gulch Road, described as "ancillary property," be designated "Residential Single Family" (RSF) "with the ancillary use of electrical and communications (already existing)." If approved by the Delta County Board of County Commissioners, another parcel would be designated RSF, "with the ancillary uses of electrical and communication utilities and non-commercial storage of privately owned business equipment, not to exceed 2.5 acres."
The BoCC was originally scheduled to consider the application on June 12. That hearing, and the public comment deadline, have been changed to July 17. Comments may be submitted at the Delta County Courthouse, 501 Palmer Street, Suite 115, Delta, CO 81416, or email to email@example.com or by faxing to 874-2500.
On Dec. 4 Delta County Commissioners Doug Atchley, Mark Roeber and Don Suppes denied the application of Paonia Holdings, LLC for a change of land use for the property at 41322 Highway 133, with an adjacent residence at 41402 Highway 133 and an ancillary property at 16180 Stevens Gulch Road.
The property is owned by Bowie Resources, LLC, and was formerly used as a coal load-out site.
