  1. Thanks for the info; clears up some issues. The March 10 PCDC hearing MUST address the entire 40-unit development, not just the 21 town homes. Remember, this is the one and only time that residents will be able to comment on and ask questions about the final plans. We’ve never seen them before. The Town has afforded residents the opportunity to review the final plans, fiscal impact study, traffic study, stormwater study, etc. – each of which addresses the entire development. Why then would they not be allowed to ask questions or make comments to the entire development?

  2. Thanks for your comment, Greg. I’m glad your questions about Low-Income Housing Tax Credit requirements were answered.

    About the additional question about whether neighbors can comment on the 19 single family home lots that Summit also plans to purchase:
    I’m sure that as a candidate for the Board of Trustees you are learning about town processes. The Development Plan process is triggered by specific situations like multifamily housing (like the proposal for 21 townhomes on Tract A of Filing No. 8 of the Lyons Valley Park subdivision), but the 19 individually platted single family homes lots already come with a right for the property owners to build single family homes through the Building Permit Process. Do you want the opportunity for neighbors to review final plans for all single family home lots in the Town of Lyons before someone can get a building permit and proceed with building – or just these because they are intended for low-income households?

  3. Great article Amy. I saw in one of the Summit documents that the development has the standard 15 year compliance period plus a 25 year “waiver”. Does that mean there is guaranteed compliance for 40 years?

  4. Hi, Chris – Thanks. I’m not sure if that adds up to a total of 40 years or if it’s still a minimum of 30 that I saw in other documents for LIHTC in Colorado. I’m hoping to either hear back from an expert or to hear the more specific answer at the March 10 Development Plan Review. But it’s a minimum of 30 years for sure, based on how LIHTC compliance is managed in Colorado by CHFA.

  5. Consider for a moment: residents were given opportunity to review traffic, financial, storm water and environmental studies for the ENTIRE development. Why would we not have chance to comment?

  6. Hi Greg. Again, as a candidate running for the Board of Trustees, do you understand the town Development Plan process? Here’s the information I have about it: The Development Plan process is specifically for the 21 townhomes for Tract A for Filing No. 8 of the Lyons Valley Park Subdivision and allows commenting on all the documents that are provided as part of that development plan at both http://www.townoflyons.com/648/Tract-A-Lyons-Valley-Park-filing-no-8 and in the “packet” of materials at the March 10 Development Plan Public Hearing meeting, which are online here: http://www.townoflyons.com/AgendaCenter/ViewFile/Agenda/_03102020-1364?html=true

    A lot more info is in my column this week: https://lyonsrecorder.org/2020/03/05/march-10-public-hearing-on-summits-development-plan/

    And you didn’t answer my earlier question: Do you want the opportunity for neighbors to review final plans for all single family home lots in the Town of Lyons before someone can get a building permit and proceed with building?
