Commissioners to review The Fields sketch plan

Contact: Sean Hanagan, Planner, 970-328-8748 or

April 7, 2016 – The Eagle County Board of Commissioners will review The Fields subdivision sketch plan during their regular meeting on April 12. The file is scheduled for a site visit at 4 p.m. at 554 Valley Road in El Jebel. A public hearing will follow beginning at 4:45 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. Last December, the Roaring Fork Valley Regional Planning Commission voted 4 - 1 to recommend the county commissioners deny the file.

Sketch plan review is the first step in the county’s subdivision process. Approval of a subdivision sketch file carries no vested rights and requires preliminary subdivision and zone change approval before development is allowed to begin.

The Fields application is available for review at Comments on the file can be submitted to For more information, contact Eagle County Planner Sean Hanagan at 970-328-8748.
