Eagle County has said if more than 26 people sign up there will be no public input allowed in person.
The hearing room will only accommodate 26 members of the public due to social distancing
The commissioners could opt to move the hearings to a larger space such as a high school gym or the fairgrounds. Or they could schedule more sessions for public input. Urge them to do so.

The proposed development at the old B&B Gravel Pit in Edwards is the densest development ever proposed in Edwards
THIS WILL ALL BE BUILD ON 22 ACRES PLUS 31 ACRES OF FLOOD PLAIN AND WETLANDS.
*594 residential units plus 92 hotel "lockoff " rooms.
*100 of the units are rental apartments that will be permanently deed restricted to low income qualified residents. The deed restricted units will all front on highway six and only be set back 25' back from the highway. The density for this portion would be about 20 units per acre. Don't our employees deserve better?
In addition the hotel will have 92 lock off bedrooms that can be rented separately. The hotel is projected by the developer to generate about 132,000 guest nights in Edwards, contain convention and meeting space and a spa.
THAT WORKS OUT TO ABOUT 2,043,700 CARS PER YEAR, MOST OF THEM GOING THOUGH THE EDWARDS ROUNDABOUT
A new roundabout would be built at Lake Creek Road which would serve as the entrance to this project. Edwards drivers can look forward to another summer of traffic delays and road work.
While ampitheaters' are typically ground level, this amphitheater would be on raised piers and a wedding/event center with amplified music and allowed to operate until 11:30 pm
The developer of River park owns a large parcel to the north of this project between the Eagle River and I-70 that he has mapped out as "future development". The only apparent access wold be to build a road across the flood plain and the river. this could multiply the impacts on Edwards.
