Dillon hosting community meeting to discuss controversial condo project
August 8, 2017
The town of Dillon will host a community meeting on Wednesday evening at 5:30 p.m. at town hall to discuss a development proposal that has drawn criticism from homeowners for its height and potential obstruction of views.
The five-story development, known as Dillon Flats Condominiums, would be located on a currently empty lot on the corner of Main and East LaBonte streets. At an estimated 58 feet, it would be below the maximum height allowed by the zoning code, but a group of homeowners is objecting on the grounds that it would block their views of the mountains and Lake Dillon.
The development would include 24 total units, six of which would be reserved for people who work at least 30 hours per week year-round in Summit County. Another four units would be reserved for buyers earning between 90 and 130 percent of the area median income.
The Planning and Zoning Commission approved the project proposal at a meeting on Aug. 2, and it will go before the town council on Aug. 15.
