Two groups deal with development issues

There are two groups operating in Pagosa Springs with goals and objectives that seem at times to be in complete opposition to each other.

Ed Morlan, the executive director of the Region 9 Economic Development District of Southwest Colorado, has assembled a team of local government and business leaders to help re-establish some type of economic development organization in Archuleta County following the recent downturn of the Pagosa Springs Community Development Corporation. This group held its second meeting at 7:30 a.m. on Monday in the Visitor Center conference room.

On the other hand, the Pagosa Springs Planning Commission held its latest regular meeting on the night of July 29, where they discussed ways to tighten up the town’s Land Use and Development Code so that the requirements for local businesses are clearer and/or more rigorous. Among other things, the commission members discussed the signs at the Quality Resort and the Quality Inn.
