Commissioners continue review of Tree Farm PUD

Contact: Adam Palmer, Planner, 970-328-8734 or adam.palmer@eaglecounty.us  

April 20, 2017 – The Eagle County Board of Commissioners will continue review of the Tree Farm Planned Unit Development (PUD) preliminary plan on April 24. The public hearing will start at 5 p.m. at the El Jebel Community Center, 0020 Eagle County Drive.  The meeting is being held on Monday at the commissioners’ request, to avoid a conflict with the regularly scheduled meeting of the Basalt Town Council on Tuesday. 
 
Next week’s hearing is set to include an overview of the project’s market study and fiscal impact; sustainability strategies; and 1041 Permit, which addresses water and wastewater service. A continuation of the discussion on the development’s housing plan, which began on April 11, is also anticipated. The hearing will include ample time for public comment.

The Tree Farm PUD encompasses 43 acres, located on the Lane Property on the north side of U.S. Highway 82 across from Willits Town Center. As proposed, the development would be comprised of up to 340 residential units including affordable housing; a maximum of 134,558 square feet of commercial, office, lodging, and/or light industrial space; and 22 acres of active and passive open space.

The Tree Farm application is available for review online at www.eaglecounty.us/Planning/Active_Land_Use_Applications. Comments on the file can be submitted to planningcomments@eaglecounty.us. To watch video of the first two commissioner hearings on the Tree Farm, visit www.ecgtv.com.
