Thursday could be one of the last times the public can weigh in on how land-use decisions are made in Eagle County’s portion of the mid-valley.  

The Roaring Fork Valley Regional Planning Commission (RFVRPC) has been taking a hard look at the Mid-Valley Area Community Plan since January.

Temple Glassier heads the committee and said, all-in-all, the input has suggested the public is pretty happy with the plan.

The RFVRPC is suggesting a few changes. Among other things, it wants the language of the plan to encourage more affordable housing projects and also wants land in Emma to be used to accommodate local agriculture, not the marijuana business.

Thursday's meeting starts at 5:30 p.m. at the Eagle County Community Center in El Jebel.
