Commissioners to continue review of The Fields sketch plan

Contact: Adam Palmer, Planner, 970-328-8734,

Nov. 3, 2016 – The Eagle County Board of Commissioners will continue their review of The Fields subdivision sketch plan during a special meeting on Nov. 10.  The public hearing is scheduled for 4 p.m. at the El Jebel Community Center, 0020 Eagle County Drive.  
The Fields encompasses approximately 19 acres near the intersection of Highway 82 and Valley Road. The proposed development would include up to 110 residential units, with between 24 and 27 of those as affordable housing units, and associated neighborhood amenities. 

In December 2015, the Roaring Fork Valley Regional Planning Commission voted 4 - 1 to recommend the county commissioners deny the file. The Board of County Commissioners heard the file on April 12 and a continuance was requested for the purpose of gathering additional information from the Colorado Department of Transportation and other agencies.

A subdivision sketch plan is conceptual and carries no vested rights. If the file is approved, review of a subsequent preliminary subdivision plan and zone change approval would be required prior to development of the property.

The Fields application is available for review at Comments on the file can be submitted to For more information, contact Eagle County Planner Adam Palmer at 970-328-8734.
