Commissions

Handshake in an officeThe Town of Columbine Valley has a Planning and Zoning Commission and a Board of Adjustments.

The Planning and Zoning Commission serves as an advisory committee to the Town Board of Trustees. Responsibilities include review and recommendations on rezoning cases, preliminary subdivision plans, and zoning ordinance amendments. The P & Z submits recommendations to the Town Board of Trustees on planning issues such as proposed development plans or modifications to the existing Land Use Manual and other related planning documents that address the development and growth of the Town. The Planning and Zoning Commission is responsible for the adoption of, and amendments to, the Master Plan.

The P & Z has nine members and up to three alternate members.  Two of the nine members are the Mayor and Planning Trustee, who sit in ex officio, non-voting roles.  A Chairman and Vice Chairman are elected by the members of the Commission from among their ranks.  The members of the Planning and Zoning Commission are appointed by the Board of Trustees for four year terms and may be reappointed at the terms expiration.

Current Members are: Sandy Graham, Chair; Gary Miles, Vice Chair; Eric Chekal, Dale Irwin, Bruce James, Mimi Kuchman, and Marilyn Meister.  Alternate members are: Jay Neese, Jeff Sahr and Jim Tarpey.

The Planning and Zoning Commission meets the second Tuesday of every month at Columbine Valley Town Hall. Meetings begin at 6:30 PM.

The Town also maintains a Board of Adjustments to consider variances and special exceptions to Town ordinances, and to hear appeals of interpretation of the zoning ordinance by Town staff.

The Board consists of nine members and up to four alternate members.  Two of the nine members are the Mayor and Planning Trustee, who sit in ex officio, non-voting roles.  A Chairman and Vice Chairman are elected by the members of the Board from among their ranks.  The members of the Board of Adjustment are appointed by the Board of Trustees for three year terms and may be reappointed at the terms expiration.

The Board of Adjustment only meets as necessary, and notice of meetings are posted at Town Hall and on this website.
