The Paonia Board of Trustees will hold a public hearing on Tuesday, July 26, to consider approval of a petition for annexation of two parcels of unincorporated land in Delta County.
Applicant Andrew Thliveris has requested annexation of Thliveris Parcels 1 and 2, which total about 2.54 acres of land currently zoned agricultural by Delta County and located directly across Third Street from the Paonia Public Library. The parcels are bordered on three sides by land located within town boundaries, including agricultural land owned by the Thliveris family and the former town wastewater treatment plant.
The Thliveris family recently opened Berg Harvest Mercantile on one of the parcels. The seasonal farmstand, selling locally-grown produce and value-added products, was named after the adjacent Berg Harvest fruit farm owned by the Thliveris family.
The meeting begins at 7 p.m., with the hearing scheduled to open at 7:30 p.m.
Two of the four marijuana questions on the November ballot were narrowly approved by voters in the City of Delta. Measure 2F allows the establishment of medical marijuana centers. Measure 2H permits the establishment of medical marijuana cultivation, testing, research and manufacturing facilities.
