Silverthorne council to review tweaks to area economic operations

The Silverthorne Town Council considers approving its Economic Development Advisory Committee’s plans to restructure and streamline its efforts at its meeting today.

The meeting is slated for 6 p.m. at the Silverthorne Town Hall.

Proposed changes include the creation of an executive committee, comprised of a few of the 11 members, to set the agenda and work plan for the advisory group. Creating subcommittees is another plan to get work accomplished.

In other economic action, council members intend to consider agreeing to allow the Northwest Colorado Council of Governments to become a federally designated economic development district. The council’s function wouldn’t change with the new status, but it would make it eligible for regional funding opportunities and allow them to provide economic development support for its members.

Also at the meeting, town council members plan to welcome newly appointed council member Stuart Richardson to fill the shoes of recently-resigned Darrick Wade. They will consider a site plan modification for the second phase of Angler Mountain Ranch’s Lakeside Townhomes as well as enter into executive session to discuss ongoing lawsuits.
