Sav-o-Mat submits revised site plan in Silverthorne

The Silverthorne Town Council Wednesday will consider a revised site plan for Sav-o-Mat, the gas station in Silverthorne now in the midst of remediation work for benzene contamination.

Silverthorne officials waived the need for a site plan to expedite remediation work, but when Sav-o-Mat owner Buzz Calkins asked for continued use of town land, it triggered the need for site improvements, Silverthorne spokesman Ryan Hyland said. The site plan modifications include architectural and drainage updates, and are recommended for approval by the Silverthorne Planning Commission.

Also at the meeting, Town Council members will consider awarding a $48,734 construction bid to Silverthorne’s Betone Civil Constructors for the northern portion of the Blue River Trail’s segment 5.

The southern portion of Segment 5 is still undergoing litigation and awaits a November court hearing and judge’s ruling on whether the town has the right to build the type of trail proposed in their easement through the Blue Mesa neighborhood.

The council meeting is set for 6 p.m. meeting Wednesday in Silverthorne’s Town Hall.
