JOANN KALENAK, DCCR SENIOR BLOGGER — Almost 40 residents attended this morning’s Delta County Commissioner annual reorganization meeting. Most were under the impression Commissioners intended to hear proposed changes to the Land Use Code although this discussion topic was never included on the agenda. Many attended to express their opposition to, in many cases, the existence of the code itself. Some addressed the changes being proposed while others complained about the lack of effort by the county to keep the community informed.
Commissioners did not answer most of the questions asked by residents but Chairman Suppes encouraged the audience to attend the upcoming Planning Commission (PC) meeting on January 11 at 5:30pm. Suppes asked the audience to bring specific issues related to the Land Use Code and not just generic complaints. Residents can attend the January PC meeting at the Delta County Administration building in Delta. A virtual pre-registration link should be available soon.
OTHER MEETING HIGHLIGHTS: Commissioners signed two letters of support at the meeting; one for Colorado Parks and Wildlife’s proposal to purchase 281 acres adjacent to Sweitzer Lake State Park in a desire to expand the park. The other is in support of grants being pursued by DMEA to improve and complete broadband services in Delta County.
