Keystone, Colorado, is on track to officially become a town after 68% of voters were found to favor incorporation on Tuesday, March 28. According to Summit Daily, the final results had 291 votes supporting and 140 votes against the split from unincorporated Summit County.
The area also voted in favor of becoming a home rule municipality, with 73.82% voting yes on the issue. In essence, Keystone will adopt a charter as its governing document. Nine of thirteen candidates were selected to serve on the chartering commission for the future town and, over the next few months, that group will set out to draft the Charter.
At some point in the summer, voters will be asked whether or not they wish to adopt the drafted charter, moving towards a Town Council election towards the end of the year if the document is passed. If voters choose to reject the charter, Keystone will have the choice to either incorporate as a statutory town or take a final opportunity to modify the charter and vote on it once more.
