Land Use Hearing on February 5, 2019

There will be a Land Use Hearing on February 5, 2019 at 7:00 p.m. at the Garden City Town Hall. The purpose of the hearing is for the Board of Trustees to hear the public’s opinion on Section 16-4-190. – Hours of operation (for a medical marijuana facility). The current Municipal Code states that  “A medical marijuana facility may operate between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. and may operate during such hours seven days per week. (Ord. No. 06-2010, § 1, 7-20-2010; Ord. No. 03-2016, § 1, 3-29-2016)”

Currently, retail marijuana facilities can stay open until 8:00 p.m. It has been requested that medical marijuana facilities may keep the same business hours as retail marijuana, which means staying open until 8:00 p.m. rather than 7:00 p.m.

The Town Hall is located at 621 27th Street Road. If you have any questions, please call the Town Hall at 970-351-0041.

8th Avenue Paving

Paving is underway and will be completed on Saturday, October 20th. This is as bad as it will get! The end of construction is in sight. There are a few areas of concrete left to pour, and the street amenities (benches, trash cans, lighting and trees) are in their final stages. Please hang in there. You can get to businesses on the east side of 8th Avenue from 7th Avenue. You can get to 7th Avenue from 25th Street or Business 85. Thank you for taking your time and ensuring the safety of the workers during this difficult time.

8th Avenue Construction Starting May 29th

After years in the planning stages, Garden City’s dream of a friendlier landscape is becoming a reality. On May 29, 2018, Naranjo Civil Constructors will start work on the 8th Avenue Realignment Project. Garden City is shifting their portion of 8th Avenue to the west to allow for safer and more convenient parking, sidewalks, signaled crosswalks, trees, pedestrian lighting and more. Businesses will be open and accessible to customers during construction, which is expected to be complete in mid-November.

In the first phase, which will last approximately six weeks, 26th Street will be closed at the Everyday Store on 8th Avenue. Please keep that in mind when planning your travel in the area.
