Board Approves “Erie Gateway South” Annexations 

The Board of Trustees approved the annexation and zoning for the Erie Gateway South Properties on Second Readings. The annexations represent approximately 229 acres of property located entirely in unincorporated Boulder County and contiguous to the Town of Erie.  Specifically, the property is located north of State Highway 7 and west of and including N. 119th Street.  In separate actions, the Board passed ordinances approving the Annexation Petitions (No. 1, No. 2, No. 3, No. 4, No. 5 and No 6) and an ordinance approving the Zoning (LR – Low Density Residential) of the property. 

Background: The Petitioner of the Erie Gateway South Annexation Request (OEO, LLC) initiated this voluntary process with the filing of their application to the Town on August 21, 2016. Subsequently, the Board approved a resolution of Substantial Compliance for the Erie Gateway South Annexation Petitions during their August 23rd meeting.  The Board approved a resolution adopting certain findings of fact and conclusions favorable to the annexations during their September 27, 2016 meeting.
