                    Dale Rocco, Michael D Krohn and Krisanne Acklam-Krohn, owners of the building located at 3808 N. River Road, are requesting annexation into the Town of Palisade. The annexation includes a single parcel of approximately .27-acre. This annexation follows the July 25 annexation of four adjoining parcels of land along North River Road owned by Rachel Cope and Tim Wedel.

The parcel includes a building constructed in 1944 according to the Mesa County Assessor’s records. The building is currently not served by Town sewer. The annexation request coincides with the property owners’ desire to connect to the Town’s sewer. The North River Road Sewer project was approved by the Board of Trustees at the February 28 meeting. Hudspeth and Associates was awarded a contract for completion of the sewer improvements along Second Street and North River Road. Until this time, the land along this section of North River Road and Second Street remained outside the Town and sewer was accomplished by on-site septic systems.

The first action of the Planning Commission and the Board of Trustees is to determine that the petition for annexation satisfies the Colorado Revised Statutes. If the Board of Trustees determines at its August 7 meeting that the petition and map, as submitted, are in substantial compliance with subsection (1) of Section 31-12-107, C.R.S., a date is established not less than 30 or more than 60 days for a public hearing for consideration of the annexation requests, subject to public notice requirements. If the Board determines that the requests are not in compliance, then no further action is taken to consider the requests.
