Breckenridge to start charging for parking at South Gondola Lot this summer
April 26, 2018
After breaking ground on a new water treatment plant, Breckenridge Town Council took on a number of other items during its work session and subsequent regular meeting on Tuesday, including deciding to implement paid parking in the South Gondola Lot this summer.
The decision was made to match paid parking at the North Gondola Lot, which sits directly across the street, according to the town.
In other business, council unanimously passed a "dig once" ordinance with the goal of limiting utility disturbances in the right-of-way for underground utility work on first reading.
According to a memo from town staff, the ordinance would ensure broadband is installed with all town projects, when utility companies are performing work in the right-of-way and with new developments.
Representatives of Xcel Energy and Comcast expressed some concerns about the proposed ordinance, including their fears over shared permits, a co-location policy, the process for issuing notifications and cost-sharing, but thanked the town for the opportunity to offer more information before the ordinance comes back on second reading.
Additionally, council designated "The Poor House" at 307 S. French St. as a local landmark, also on first reading. Sought by the owners, the tag will make the property eligible for more grant money than it otherwise would be, according to town staff.
