Pueblo County Code - Title 17 - Chapter 17.128 VESTED PROPERTY RIGHTS
No site specific development plan shall be approved until after a public hearing preceded by written notice of such hearing. Such notice may, at the County’s option, be combined with the notices otherwise required under this Title and/or Title 16, as amended, or with any other required notice. At such hearing, interested persons including owners of the described property, their representatives, and other interested persons shall have an opportunity to be heard.
A site specific development plan shall be deemed approved upon the effective date of the final Board of County Commissioner’s action approving such plan. In the event amendments to a site specific development plan are approved, the effective date of such amendments, for purposes of duration of a vested property right, shall be the date of the approval of the original site specific development plan, unless the Board of County Commissioners specifically finds to the contrary and incorporates such findings in its approval of the amendment. Pueblo County is authorized, but shall not be required to extend vested property rights for a period exceeding three years where warranted in light of all relevant circumstances, including, but not limited to, the size and phasing of the development, economic cycles and market conditions and the like.
Nothing in this Chapter is intended to create any vested real property right, but only to implement the provisions of Article 68 of Title 24, Sections 101-106, C.R.S, as amended. In the event of the repeal of said Article or a judicial determination that said Article is invalid or unconstitutional, this Chapter shall be deemed to be repealed, and the provisions hereof no longer effective.
