A developer of renewable energy projects that wants to build an 18,000-panel solar power plant south of Woody Creek will face Pitkin County’s full land-use review process, consisting of scrutiny from the Planning & Zoning Commission and the Board of County Commissioners as well as public hearings at meetings of both entities, according to a local consultant involved in the project.
Aspen planner Alan Richman, who is working with global developer Renewable Energy Systems, said claims that the company is seeking an expedited review process for the project simply aren’t true. Suzanne Wolff, the county’s assistant director of community development, confirmed that no corners will be cut in the process.
