McCain Master Plan Public Meeting - Tues., Feb. 26 starting at 6 p.m. at Council Chambers in Town Hall, 150 Ski Hill Road.
The McCain property, a 126-acre parcel located north of Coyne Valley Road and west of Highway 9, represents the last large unplanned property of the valley floor in Breckenridge. The Town of Breckenridge owns this property and is looking for public input as it develops a master plan to guide its future use. Currently situated on this parcel is a gravel operation, some service commercial (e.g. contractor's years) and a retail commercial business. The draft master plan proposes a number of uses based on an analysis of uses that are anticipated to be needed in the future, including a number of 'governmental' uses. In addition, the Breckenridge Comprehensive and SustainableBreck Plans, which involved substantial public involvement, have indicated a future need for certain service commercial uses in the area.
'Governmental' uses are proposed on the majority of the McCain property and are intended to meet the needs of the community. These include: open space (a minimum of 30% of this property, including the river corridor), a community solar garden, trails, snow storage, overflow and event parking, recycling center, water treatment facility and water storage. Residential uses could also be considered for this area. At the northern end of the property, an approximately five-ten acre tract is proposed for service commercial and possibly residential uses, including contractor/building trades with or without storage yards, equipment rental, auto body/auto repair, auto rental, auto wash, outdoor storage, and warehouses (without distribution) and/or open space. Another approximately five acre tract at the north end of the property is proposed for commercial and residential uses, including restaurants, cafes, coffee shops, general retail stores (e.g., book store, clothing, grocery, florist, convenience store, hardware, liquor, sporting goods), office, bank, gas station without auto repair service, and entertainment facilities (e.g., bowling, pool hall, dance studio, theatre) and/or open space.
The public is encouraged to attend and provide their input regarding the future of the McCain property. The Town Council will be accepting written and oral comments at the February 26 public meeting.
