Roya Beklik attended the Hotchkiss council meeting on Oct. 13 to introduce herself. She recently purchased the lot at 191 E. Bridge Street, directly east of the former Coyote Drive-In.
Beklik said she's sought and received ideas on what would be the best use for the vacant lot, which currently is used for public parking and was the site for the Farm to Fiddle celebration. She said she doesn't want to take the parking spaces away.
Beklik said she plans some beautification projects and hopes by next year to hold a Saturday market offering a variety of products.
At their March 5 meeting Commissioners Doug Atchley, Mark Roeber and Don Suppes made two appointments to the county planning commission. Steve Shea was reappointed for a three-year term.
