The Elbert County Planning Commission will hold off on meeting
until Dec. 22 to discuss the changes to the county’s zoning,
subdivision and 1041 regulations.
At the Oct. 29 commissioners meeting, the changes were scheduled
to be discussed, but at the previous planning committee meeting,
the committee decided that it wanted to wait until after the
housing and residential guidelines were complete, so no discussion
was brought to the commissioners at that time.
Planning chief Richard Miller made that announcement to the
county commissioners and the public at the board of county
commissioners meeting, Nov. 12. He said he pulled the application
because of additional feedback he had received from Colorado
referral agencies and concerns from citizens.
“I wanted to get those concerns taken care of and deal with all
the issues before having any hearings,” he said.
Once the planning committee meets, there will be a two-week
period before the discussion is brought to the board Jan. 14,
County Commissioner John Metli showed frustration at both the
Oct. 29 and the Nov. 12 meetings, hoping the changes would be
brought to the board at an earlier date. He showed his support for
Elbert County landowners and said they are the ones being left
“This is pathetic for those who have bought land and now are
being pushed to sell it,” he said. “This is pretty bad.”
