Dillon town council sends hotel development back to drawing board
March 23, 2017
The Dillon Town Council rejected a proposal for a hotel development at its regular meeting Tuesday night, citing concerns over the structure's height and size, town spokeswoman Kerstin Anderson said.
"Council liked a lot of things about this project and they don't want to be discouraging development, but there were issued related to parking and the height and mass of the building," she said.
The plan had proposed a 6-story hotel and conference center on the corner of Highway 6 and Lake Dillon Drive, where a gas station currently sits. The structure would have been significantly taller than the 40 feet the zoning code allows and that site and would have required a waiver.
"The council has directed town staff to go back to the table with the applicant and look at the size, parking issues and more details to be comfortable going forward with it."
