Decision now goes before county commissioners

Banner signs clear Planning Commission hurdle

By Vicky Gits

The Jeffco Planning Commission voted 7-1 to endorse a proposed regulation allowing businesses to display up to one banner sign and one sandwich board per location. The decision came during a regular a meeting Oct. 12.

The ban on banner signs, however, won't be officially over until the Board of County Commissioners votes on the issue.

Shirley Johnson of Conifer, chair of the planning board, voted against the proposal. Voting in favor were Tim Rogers, Nancy Ferguson, Larry Anna, Richard Olson, Jack Bestall and James Price.

Weed-eating fish on way to Evergreen Lake

By Vicky Gits

A fish that loves to eat lake weeds and can grow to 50 pounds is being introduced to Evergreen Lake this fall in hopes that it will seriously reduce the massive vegetation problem.

Last summer park and water district workers laboriously removed 25 truckloads, or about 25 tons, of elodea, a common lake weed that for some reason grew to massive proportions last summer.

Proponents of independent library district challenge Jeffco officials

Citizens take commissioners to task over library control

By Vicky Gits

The atmosphere started out friendly but things got a little heated at a meeting last week as the questions and answers turned to the matter of the Jeffco Public Library and whether it's time to for the system to declare independence and form a library district.

Meanwhile, one attendee took members of the Board of Commissioners to task for allowing the prospect of legal short-term vacation rentals to come up again, and another suggested reducing the open space sales tax by half.

Evergreen becomes part of Front Range in new Senate district map

By Vicky Gits

Evergreen voters can say hello to the Front Range and goodbye to ski-country neighbors if the proposed new boundaries of Senate District 16 take effect in 2012.

The change means Evergreen moves into SD 22, a more compact area consisting of the mountain and unincorporated areas of Jefferson County. As part of the current SD 16, Evergreen was part of a district reaching to the far-flung areas of Clear Creek, Gilpin, Grand and Summit counties.
