    Previously:

    On October 5, 2022, the Planning Commission voted 6-1 to recommend approval of the Lena Gulch PUD/ODP-2nd Amendment with conditions related to traffic mitigation to City Council. See Resolution: PC22-02a


    The Planning Commission of the City of Golden held a Public Hearing at a meeting on Wednesday, October 5, 2022 at 6:30 P.M. in the City Hall Council Chambers, 911 10th Street, Golden, Colorado to review an application requesting a major amendment to the Lena Gulch Planned Unit Development in order to allow mining operations in an area currently used as a buffer zone on the south side of the aggregate mine (the “Buffer Exchange Area (To Be Mined) 13.8 Acres” shown on map), to establish a new buffer zone in an area previously mined on the north side of the aggregate mine (the “New Buffer Area 13.8 Acres” shown on map), and to add office as a permitted primary use in the area of the site adjacent to W. Colfax Avenue. The major amendment proposes a 55-foot setback from W. Colfax Avenue and a 25foot height limit on the primary office use. If approved, the zoning amendment would extend the lifespan of the mine but not the number of annual truck trips.

    The attached map explains the changes proposed to the mine. Separate from the major amendment to the Lena Gulch Planned Unit Development, the applicant is seeking a zoning amendment from Jefferson County to expand mining operations (the aggregate quarry) south of the City’s southern boundary in the area of the map labeled “Future Mining Area 48 Acres”; this area is outside of the City’s jurisdiction and is not part of the application being reviewed by the Golden Planning Commission.
