The City of Steamboat Springs and the Yampa Valley Housing Authority (YVHA) are developing a draft agreement to annex the proposed Brown Ranch property for City Council consideration. The agreement will be ironed out by the Brown Ranch Annexation Committee (BRAC) consisting of two City Councilors, two members of the Yampa Valley Housing Authority (YVHA) Board of Directors, the City Manager, YVHA Executive Director. In addition, city and YVHA staff and/or technical consultants will participate as required.

The Brown Ranch Annexation Committee is an open public body that follows similar meeting requirements to city boards & commissions like City Council or Planning Commission. The committee is charged with negotiating the terms of a comprehensive agreement governing the proposed annexation. These meetings will address infrastructure (roads, utilities, sidewalks, trails, etc.), anticipated costs including operational expenses and other related elements such as parks, transit, and water/wastewater. Once the draft agreement is finalized, City Council will review and discuss the agreement through normal meeting protocols.

All future meeting minutes, agendas, session video recording and other pertinent material will be accessible online through the city website, YVHA website and EngageSteamboat.net/Annex. Public comment is available at all committee meetings, through EngageSteamboat.net or by email or letter.
