Feb. 9 Breckenridge Town Council preview

Tuesday’s Breckenridge Town Council meeting starts on Feb. 9, at 7:30 p.m.

It will be held in the council chambers at Breckenridge Town Hall.

SECOND READING: AN ORDINANCE DESIGNATING OLD ENYEART PLACE AS A LANDMARK

Breckenridge Town Council will vote on Tuesday whether to designate Lot 7, Block 7, Yingling and Mickles (know as 112 South Harris Street) as a landmark.

On Dec. 1, the Planning Commission recommended the town adopt the structure as a local landmark.

Improvements to the property are more than 50 years old, and the property meets requirements for the “social” designation criteria for a landmark as it is associated with a notable person or their work.

SECOND READING: AN ORDINANCE DESIGNATING THE GALLAGHER RESIDENCE AS A LANDMARK

Similar to Old Enyeart Place, the Planning Commission also recommended that the town designate the Gallagher Residence (Lot 8A, Block 7 of the Yingling and Mickels Subdivision) as a local landmark.

The property, owned by Michael Gallagher, meet “physical integrity” criteria for a local landmark.

The property would meet architectural designation for a landmark because of its style, associated with the Breckenridge area in particular.

PLANNING COMMISSION MATTERS: RESTORING THE MARVEL HOUSE

Breckenridge’s Planning Commission recommends Town Council adopt an ordinance to locally landmark the historic Marvel House.

The full application not only includes the issue of landmarking, but also allowing for restoration, the addition of a basement, a new residence to the back of the historic house and a new separate garage (with an accessory apartment) above the alley.

SETTING AN ELECTION DATE

With recent changes to Colorado election law to accommodate overseas voters, the town will need to allow for flexibility in scheduling the first town council meeting in April for municipal election years.

As the new election law stands, the timeframe won’t allow for ballot certification until later than eight days after the election, putting new councilmembers in office after the first meeting in April. Hence, the need for flexibility in the first meeting date.

The resolution to amend this procedure will be voted on Tuesday evening.

Breckenridge Housing Summit: Feb. 11 from 12-3 p.m.

Parking and Transit Forums: Feb. 18, 7:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Breckenridge Grand Vacations Community Center.
