JEFFERSON COUNTY, Colo. — Jefferson County commissioners approved a final draft of a controversial plan to develop Dinosaur Ridge during a meeting Tuesday.
On Jan. 17, the board approved a modified version of the rezoning with the addition of only some of the proposed uses — including hotels, motels, gas stations and car washes.
The final draft was approved, 2-1, on Tuesday.
A public hearing lasted more than eight hours earlier this month that amended the plan to drop car dealerships.
For nearly a year, developer Three Dinos has been working with Jefferson County on a plan for the land near C-470 and Alameda Parkway.
Dinosaur Ridge is known as a treasure trove of dinosaur fossils.
