Steamboat City Council approves Brynn Grey annexation agreement

STEAMBOAT SPRINGS — The Steamboat Springs City Council approved an annexation agreement with Brynn Grey Partners, the developers who hope to build three neighborhoods west of current city limits.

The resolution approving the agreement does not outright approve annexation, which would be done by ordinance. The annexation will see a minimum of four more public hearings at city council and a planning commission hearing.

An in-depth story about the annexation agreement will be online Wednesday, Sept. 19 and in the Thursday, Sept. 20 print edition of the Steamboat Pilot & Today.

Council also took the following actions Tuesday.

  • City Council gave staff direction for the city’s annual contribution to the Steamboat Springs Chamber budget. Council sought to include $850,000 in funding for destination marketing, $60,000 for economic development and $100,000 for special events funding.
  • Council approved the Steamboat Springs Local Marketing District operating plan and budget for the upcoming year.
  • Council approved the Downtown Steamboat Business Improvement District’s 2019 operating plan.
  • Council approved on an amendment on second reading to city code that will exempt secondary units, such as sheds and tiny homes, from lot coverage and floor area ratio calculations. The measure is intended to create more affordable housing in the city.
  • Council also gave final approval of a joint-agreement with the Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club, which irons out each entity’s contributions to operations on Howelsen Hill.
