Proposed zoning changes would allow short-term rentals

By Emile Hallez

The Jefferson County commissioners are mulling revisions to zoning ordinances that could allow short-term vacation rentals of single-family homes.

County zoning staff presented a draft of changes at a May 10 meeting with the commissioners, who initially rejected the revisions, citing overly complex requirements the resolution would place on applicants.

Sparks fly over whether to close union negotiations

By Emile Hallez

Aspects of the Jeffco Public Schools budget were contentious, but more animosity was sparked among board members May 5 regarding whether to hold negotiations with employee unions in closed session. Though it failed on April 21 by a vote of 2-2, the issue was again raised at last week’s hearing, and a vote of 4-1 approved the measure.

The prior vote was invalid, some board members argued, dismissing it on a technicality.

The measure included a caveat that the Board of Education must direct a negotiating team before a closed session is held.

Bugged by litter: Evergreen couple round up a trove of trash in gulley by Safeway

By Vicky Gits

It's one thing to pick up the trash on your own street, but it's an entirely different level of selfless citizenship to pick up the highway and shopping center debris cluttering a steep ditch next to a public parking lot.

By Vicky Gits

The average Jeffco home lost 1 percent of its value during the two-year period that ended June 30, 2010, according to an analysis of 149,000 homes by the county assessor.

And the mountain communities were hit even harder than the county overall by the general residential-housing malaise and price depreciation.

Notices of valuation went out to homeowners May 1.
