Contact: Scot Hunn, Current Planning Manager, at 970-328-8624 or scot.hunn@eaglecounty.us

Aug. 3, 2015 – The Roaring Fork Valley Regional Planning Commission will continue review of the Tree Farm Planned Unit Development (PUD) preliminary plan during its regular meeting on Aug. 6. The hearing will begin at 4 p.m. at the El Jebel Community Center, 0020 Eagle County Drive in El Jebel. Public comment is anticipated to start at 6 p.m., following presentations by the applicant and staff.

Thursday’s meeting will include a review of the project’s proposed affordable housing plan, as well as a continuation of the discussion on the PUD Guide that began on July 2. In addition, staff will give an update regarding the El Jebel Road and Hwy 82 intersection improvement project.

The Tree Farm PUD encompasses 71 acres, located on what’s known as the Lane Property on the north side of U.S. Highway 82 across from Willits Town Center. As proposed, the development would include up to 400 residential units, approximately 135,000 square feet of commercial, office, lodging, and/or light industrial space, 42 acres of active and passive open space, and the continued use of the property for tree farm and nursery operations.

The Tree Farm application and staff report are available for review online at www.eaglecounty.us/Planning/Active_Land_Use_Applications. Comments on the file can be submitted to planningcomments@eaglecounty.us. For more information, contact Eagle County Planner Scot Hunn at 970-328-8624.
