STEAMBOAT SPRINGS, Colorado: A discussion was held on July 21, 2009 by the Steamboat Springs City Council on Tuesday July 21,2009 to discuss the issue of the Steamboat 700 project and the proposed ballot measure against it. During the hearing, the council set dates of September 22, 2009 and October 13, 2009 for first and second readings on the annexation. After that time, the status of the referendum will then be decided. If the referendum is approved by the council, they will then schedule a public vote on the matter.
The Steamboat 700 is a residential and shopping development that in order to be built up as its supporters wish, requires Steamboat Springs to annex 700 acres of land around Steamboat Springs.
The development plan is headed by Steamboat 700, LLC, a group of real estate professionals.
