As this is a public meeting — not a public hearing — no public testimony will be taken.

The purpose of the meeting is to discuss the status of a Community Planning & Permitting special use application — currently on hold — concerning a potential compost facility at the former Rainbow Tree Nursery site on US Highway 287, south of CO Highway 52.

At the March 4 meeting, Public Works director Jeff Maxwell will make a recommendation to the Board of County Commissioners to withdraw the application in order to allow staff and the commissioners to assess new information and allow for more public dialogue about a compost facility in Boulder County. Additional details will be provided as part of the public meeting.
