    The Planning Commission moved to approve the special use permit during the meeting on December 2, 2020. The discussion has been tabled until the January 6, 2021 meeting, where public comment will be reopened. All public comment may be emailed to planningcommission@cityofgolden.net.

    The Planning Commission of the City of Golden will hold a Public Hearing at a meeting on Wednesday, December 2, 2020 at 6:30 P.M. online on the City Website to consider the following requests for the proposed Canyon View Apartment project: a special use permit, site plan review, parking variance, and a density and banking plan for a 150 unit (mostly middle-income) multi-family project on about 5 acres on New Star Way, near the corner of Golden Gate Canyon Road. The PUD zoning of the property allows this area to be developed under the C-1 standards, allowing for 100% residential use under a special use permit.

    The review of the site plan requires three additional approvals. The first is a parking variance due to the proposed 71 micro-units (studio apartments) which average 360 square feet in size. The second is a density variance, reducing the average area of the lot per dwelling from 2,100 square feet to 1,468 square feet. Finally, the banking plan is proposed for the City allocation bank; 130 affordable housing units to be borrowed from the future due to the Applicant proposing affordable workforce or middle-income (80%-120% area median income) units.

    A Neighborhood Information Meeting was held for this project at 4:30 pm, September 9, 2020.
