Steamboat City Council to consider relaxing aspects of vacation home rental policy

City of Steamboat Springs Project Manager Laura Anderson and Bob Furman

In other action

  • City Council voted unanimously to spend $91,187 from its 2010 capital budget to match grants in support of a new urban trail that would link existing trails beneath the Mount Werner Road underpass. Great Outdoors Colorado has granted $34,500 in lottery proceeds for the project, and Colorado State Parks will provide another $37,285.
  • City Director of Parks, Open Space and Recreational Services Chris Wilson told City Council in a memo that the project would connect the Wildhorse Meadows trail where it ends just west of Loaf ‘N Jug through the highway underpass to the Yampa River Core Trail at Rotary Park.
  • Council unanimously approved the petition of Casey’s Pond LLC for a preliminary plat subdividing a 12-acre parcel on Walton Creek Road to enable the development of a senior living campus on the western half of the site. The action paves the way for the creation of a new city street, connecting Walton Creek Road to Owl Hoot Lane in Wildhorse Meadows.
  • Councilman Jim Engelken, who is stepping down in the midst of his term on City Council, was feted by Council and city staff members with a cake and presented a photograph of Steamboat Ski Area. Engelken, who said he first moved to Steamboat when he was 20, previously served a long tenure on Council in the 1990s. He is leaving the city to reunite his family in Denver where his wife, Nancy, is employed.
