Tree Farm Application and Staff Report

June 29, 2015 – The Roaring Fork Valley Regional Planning Commission will continue their review of the Tree Farm Planned Unit Development (PUD) preliminary plan during their regular meeting on July 2. The public hearing will begin at 4 p.m. at the El Jebel Community Center, 0020 Eagle County Drive in El Jebel. This is the second of several anticipated hearings on the preliminary plan.  

Thursday’s meeting will include an overview of the Tree Farm PUD Guide; a discussion on the project’s conformance with relevant master planning documents including the Eagle County Comprehensive Plan, the Mid-Valley Area Community Plan, and the Town of Basalt Master Plan; and a review of the Tree Farm Market Analysis and Fiscal Impact Study.

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.
