[ARCHIVED] Town Council Meeting Update - July 6

Town Council Meeting Update

Want to know what happened at the most recent Town Council Meeting? We have you covered! Recaps will be posted on each Wednesday following that week’s Town Council Meeting.



  • Vista South Settlement Agreement
    Town Council approved a settlement agreement for a civil lawsuit filed by Vista South, LLC and Mountain Waste-South Metro, LLC (collectively referred to as “Vista South”). Vista South owns two lots within the Grasslands-Prairie Trail Planned Development area, which were annexed and zoned by The Town. As a result, Vista South filed a civil action challenging the annexation and zoning of the property. The Douglas County District Court issued an order approving the annexation, but invalidating the zoning of the property. Both the Town and Vista South appealed the order to the Colorado Court of Appeals. The Town and Vista South desire to settle the lawsuit, based on terms that validate the annexation and zoning of the property, which will allow Vista South to develop the property in the manner allowed by the zoning. With approval of the settlement agreement by Town Council, the lawsuit is dismissed, the order vacated, the appeal dismissed and the Town will be released from all liability related to the lawsuit.

The new PD will update the list of permitted uses to accommodate and promote retail/restaurant/service uses on the majority of the site and allow multi-family residential use on a portion of the site.
