New Plan for Lower Blue River Basin

A new guide for growth has been adopted for the Lower Blue River Basin, detailing how development in the area should progress in the next few years.

The Lower Blue Planning Commission unanimously approved an update to the Lower Blue Master Plan, culminating a six month undertaking.

The Lower Blue River basin spans from the Dillon Dam to the Grand County line past Heeney.

The biggest sticking point during a public hearing held before the commission voted on the update was how to treat the marina off County Road 30 in Heeney that provides boaters access to Green Mountain Reservoir.

After a meeting several months ago in the small community, the planning commission decided that the majority of residents in attendance agreed with creating a new land use designation for the small marina. Labeling the area a "marine facility" was expected to improve marina amenities and reservoir access.
