Oak Creek to hold discussion on Main Street projects

Oak Creek Town Hall
Austin Colbert

— The Oak Creek Town Board met Thursday in regular session, but its primary agenda item was tabled to June 16.

The tabled item, a downtown conditions survey, will take place at 4:30 p.m. that day at town hall and will feature a presentation and discussion by consultant group Ricker/Cunningham.

“It’s the kickoff to our economic development and revitalization efforts in the Main Street area,” said Oak Creek town administrator Mary Alice Page-Allen. “It’s the first meeting in a whole series of meetings to develop the town economic development plan. The critical component is the central business district.”

Work is set to begin in May 2017 on the town’s water line. Next week’s discussion is aimed at other kinds of infrastructure, such as streetlights and sidewalks, which the town hopes to incorporate into the water line project.

The only two action items during Thursday’s board meeting were both approved.

The first was a revocable permit to allow Jessen Construction LLC to use property owned by the town to store its equipment while it demolishes a building located at 208 Sharp St. The second was the renewal of a retail marijuana business license for the Crested Butte Wellness Center, located at 240 Arthur Ave.

After next week’s special session, the next regular town board meeting is scheduled for June 23.
