Buena Vista Phase I:
A 1¼ -acre parcel of land has been pledged to be
donated to V2V to be used for a new facility in Buena
Vista. The parcel is located approximately one mile
south of the Town via Highway 285 and County Road
319 on flat ground with direct access to paved CR 319,
and to the Central Colorado Regional Airport just north
along CR319. The community has expressed an urgent
need for the facility resulting in a perceived willingness
to encourage the project. It is believed that from an
entitlement and permitting standpoint construction at
the site could proceed within a few months following
sufficient funding raised and once normal administrative
hurdles are cleared.
The property will be served by the Town's water system, an individual sewage lift station and force main to the Buena Vista Sanitation District wastewater collection system that terminates just north of the site, electrical power, telecommunications and natural gas utilities constructed in accordance with applicable specifications. On-site improvements will include grading of the site, extension of utilities to the building itself, excavation for building construction, decorative fencing as desired, seeding and landscaping, driveway and parking surfacing and signage.
