New City Council Considers Land Swap
The city council in Alamosa, Colo., is ready to face the challenges of 2014, including a proposal for the city to swap land with a developer so he can build an RV resort, according to the Valley Courier.
The council plans to resume dealing with one of the issues unresolved from the previous year, the Alamosa RV Resort on the Rio Grande, during a work session this Wednesday (Jan. 22) at 7 p.m. at city hall. Annexation and land exchange proposals are pending with the resort that Alamosa businessman Dan Russell is proposing on the former Polston school property off Highway 17.
Russell, an RV resort developer, is working on a land swap to trade the city some park land on the Rio Grande for city-owned ranch land.
Russell proposed a trade of about 14 acres of his property on what was formerly the Polston Primary School site for about 18 acres of city-owned Alamosa Ranch property
