What: Steamboat Springs City Council meeting

When: 5 p.m. today

Where: Centennial Hall, 124 10th St.

At its 5 p.m. meeting today, the Steamboat Springs City Council will consider adoption of a pre-annexation agreement with the developers of 360 Village. The agreement marks the beginning of more detailed negotiations concerning the proposed 110-acre community. The pre-annexation agreement sets the bar for such issues as affordable housing requirements, project vesting, fiscal impacts and water rights dedication.

Council also is scheduled to receive an update on Steamboat 700 - the other planned project west of city limits seeking annexation. A decision on that project is expected in the fall.

Also today, council will consider the first reading of an ordinance placing a question on the Nov. 3 ballot that would amend the city's Home Rule Charter. If approved, the ballot measure would cure a discrepancy between the city charter and state statute concerning the number of signatures required for a referendum petition.

Council also will vote today on a number of planning matters, including a proposal by Howelsen Place Condominiums to submit a payment in lieu to the city in exchange for the ability to remove deed restrictions from six units. There also are proposals to build two new mixed-use buildings - with height variances - on Yampa Street adjacent to Steamboat Yacht Club and a request for a water body setback variance for a new deck above the restaurant.
