    A Neighborhood Information Meeting was held at 5:00 PM Thursday June 23, 2022 at Fossil Trace Golf Course, 3050 Illinois Street, to discuss the potential project located 670 Rooney Road. This proposal is for an annexation and zoning for a Recreational Vehicle Resort and Personal Warehouse component, Planned Unit Development. The Applicant’s description is below:

    The intent is to develop a portion of the site with an approximate 30,000 to 35,000

    square foot restaurant/event center with support uses and parking to support the

    main uses in the building. This venue will be an indoor use and there is no intent

    to have any outdoor entertainment. In addition, the concept includes a high‐end

    Luxury RV Park with individual “Casitas” and amenities for overnight stays with

    each space. All overnight stays will be capped at 30 days. The site has varied terrain

    and we plan to work with the grades and deliver a high‐quality, well landscaped,

    visually pleasing development on the property. We are also considering having

    high‐end interior garages on the portion of the site west of the road to

    accommodate large size garages and indoor space for personal working on small or

    large vehicles.

    Conceptual Plans

    Purpose: The meeting is an opportunity for neighbors to view conceptual plans and provide feedback to the Applicant about a potential project near their neighborhood and plans prior to submission of the project to the City for review.

    Updated Planning Commission Packet for 4/6/22 Meeting

    April 2022 ODP


    UPDATE ON 2/23 PLANNING COMMISSION MEETING:

    Due to the high level of community interest in the CoorsTek Zoning and Redevelopment proposal, CoorsTek has requested a continuance of the February 23rd hearing to April 6th in order to carve out time for direct engagement with the public on their proposal (see attached letter). There will be no presentation or public comment on this request this evening.

    Due to the breadth and depth of CoorsTek’s proposal, both City of Golden staff and the applicant (CoorsTek) want the public to have the chance for direct dialogue with the applicant and City staff. The neighborhood meeting that was held several months ago was an opportunity for the applicant to share their vision with the community and relate it to the Clear Creek Neighborhood Plan, but the details of their proposal were not known until the formal submittal was made. Staff and the applicant would like to revisit the neighborhood/community meeting format now that these specifics are available.

    During the month of March, staff will hold two city-hosted virtual meetings that will serve as opportunities for direct engagement between the public and the applicant, with city staff there to answer questions and introduce the meeting. The starting point for these listening sessions will be the direction provided in the North Clear Creek Neighborhood Plan and the revised Official Development Plan in the supplemental packet submitted to Planning Commission and posted on Guiding Golden. The applicant will also record a video presentation prior to these two meetings that staff will post, and staff will encourage advance viewing by the public in order to make these sessions more focused on public questions and comments. In-person office hours will also be offered during this period, and dates and times will be announced in coming days. These meetings are not in lieu of public comment for the Planning Commission hearings. The public may still provide written comments for the scheduled April 6 hearing at Planning Commission via planningcommission@cityofgolden.net.

    Please stay tuned to GuidingGolden.com for meeting dates, times and any further information on the CoorsTek proposal.


    The Planning Commission moved to continue the hearing to Wednesday, February 23, 2022. This meeting will be held at City Hall Council Chambers, 911 10th Street at 6:30 p.m. There will be a chance to give public comment at this meeting, or you can send your public comment to planningcommission@cityofgolden.net by 1 p.m. on February 23, 2022.
