Collaboration Agreement with Weld County Approved
On March 27, 2020, the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act was enacted to provide over $2 trillion of economic relief. Weld County has received CARES funds from the State of Colorado that it wishes to distribute to municipalities in its jurisdiction to mitigate the impacts of COVID-19. During last Wednesday night’s meeting, the Board of Trustees approved Resolution 20-65, a collaboration agreement between the Town of Firestone and Weld County, regarding the distribution of CARES Act funds. The portion of the CARES funds that will be distributed to the Town of Firestone will assist the Town in mitigating the impacts of COVID-19 to the Town’s operations, and the residents and businesses located in Firestone.
New Firestone Development Code Adopted
During last Wednesday night’s meeting, the Board of Trustees approved Ordinance 976 which repealed in their entirety Titles 16 (Subdivision) and 17 (Zoning) of the Firestone Municipal Code as well as the separately adopted Firestone Development Regulations, approves a new unified development code entitled the Firestone Development Code (FDC), and adopts the official zoning map of the Town of Firestone.
The new FDC compiles all land use related regulations, including zoning, subdivision, land use processes, and other development-related subjects for the Town of Firestone into a single unified development code. Overall the FDC is specifically intended to foster quality, compatible, and efficient relationships among land uses and provide a clear, timely, business-friendly development processing atmosphere for residential, retail, commercial, and primary employer developments.
