County pulls plug on land-use code

Planners say flaws in rules would increase sprawl, not prevent it
In other action

La Plata County commissioners on Tuesday extended for another year an agreement with the city of Durango that requires developers to pitch in for the cost of improving nearby roads.

The deal, which Durango city councilors approved at their meeting Tuesday, is an amendment to an existing agreement passed in 2005.

It requires developments in designated areas near the city limits to contribute to off-site road improvements if they cause traffic to increase by 20 percent or more. The roads agreement is intended as stopgap while councilors and commissioners work on a broader solution to growth in the greater Durango area.
