Steamboat Springs Issues surrounding water and sewer service and the town’s land-use code continue to occupy Oak Creek Town Board members.
The Town Board meets at 7 p.m. Thursday to consider a request to waive water and sewer service fees for the Historical Society of Oak Creek and Phippsburg; a land-use change of minor impact for a downtown building owned by Shady Curry Holdings LLC; and an ordinance adopting land-use code amendments previously recommended by the Planning Commission.
The land-use change for the Shady Curry Holdings LLC building in performance district 1 would redefine the commercial laundry as an accessory residential use, as the laundry now is restricted to tenants. The change would lower the building’s water and sewer rates.
Town Administrator Mary Alice Page-Allen is recommending the Town Board table the historical society’s request for a fee waiver. She said the request has opened a larger discussion about town loan agreements and sections of the municipal code that require the services be paid.
