The Town of Orchard City does have building codes and does require building permits for most types of construction.
But as of April 8, a building of 200 square feet or less will require no building permit in the town.
There is really not a nicer park in Cedaredge than the ridge-top Cedaredge Cemetery.
With a vantage point that provides a sweeping vista from Green Mountain to the San Juan range, well-maintained landscaping, and peaceful solitude amidst the monuments of Surface Creek Valley’s history, the park provides a peaceful retreat above the hubbub of a bustling highway strip.
The Cedaredge Cemetery also holds the treasured memories and legacies of local families, and its expanses of green lawn and manicured landscaping are a tribute of respect to those who have built the valley community, and to their descendents as well.
The price to bring broadband Internet via fiberoptic cable to Cedaredge will be $400,000, the town’s trustees were told during an April 9 work session.
The $400,000 cost is only an estimate, in part because the status of a grant request to the Department of Local Affairs (DOLA) is not known.
Orchard City trustees denied an easement variance request during their regular meeting on April 8.
The owner of a home and business located at the intersection of Austin Road and Fairview Road had made a written request to place an eight-foot-high fence in the utility easement along Austin Road in front of his property.
Arrival of the nice spring weather has brought a blooming of the valley’s arts and entertainment community.
Concerts, performances, outdoor events and presentations of all kinds are being scheduled, and notices are posted in available window space all over town in Cedaredge.
