City Council to talk housing, Howelsen Hill, goals Tuesday
The Steamboat Springs City Council on Tuesday will meet with a real estate development company that is interested in creating new neighborhoods on the west side of town, possibly on the Steamboat 700 parcel.
Representatives from Brynn Grey will have 90 minutes to lay out their vision for the potential development in west Steamboat during a workshop session.
The developers already have been communicating with city staff about the prospect. They also have talked individually with certain council members.
A conceptual plan will be presented Tuesday.
Representatives from Brynn Grey told City Council last month they have recevied positive feedback about the possibility of creating new attainable housing on the west side of the city.
David O’Neil, Brynn Grey founder, touted his company’s track record of creating neighborhoods for locals in resort communities on the Western Slope.
The developers specifically mentioned the Steamboat 700 parcel as one of the opportunities available and noted millions of dollars worth of planning already was done to investigate the feasibility of infrastructure and other considerations.
In addition to the discussion about potential housing developments, the council will discuss possible changes to the joint usage agreement at Howelsen Hill with the Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club.
The council also will discuss its first six months and its progress toward achieving a long list of goals.
The meeting starts at 5 p.m. in Citizens Hall.
