Interchange discussed by boards
The Windsor and Severance town boards on Monday met for a joint work session that focused on how best to approach a deal that could bring a new interchange and revenue-generating developments to areas north of downtown Windsor.
The talk was geared toward the future of a new intergovernmental agreement that will outline the future of the Colo. 257/Weld County Road 74 intersection. Specific items of discussion ranged from what types of businesses would be permitted in the area to what types of signs could be added to ensure both community gateways are represented fairly.
The two towns have long honored a series of intergovernmental agreements and revenue structures. This marks yet another step forward as the region continues to develop, as many leaders said, together.
“I think it has been in both boards’ interest to hold these conversations,” said Windsor Mayor John Vazquez.
The talks are in the early stages, but both boards want to be ready if and when the funds, opportunity and development do arise. Each community will refer the agreements to their respective planning commissions later this month and into March. The measures and agreement specifics will then come to each town board for final approval.
