Tree Farm PUD review continues on Thursday

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

Nov. 2, 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 Nov. 5, which will take place at the El Jebel Community Center, 0020 Eagle County Drive in El Jebel.

The meeting will begin at 2:30 p.m. with the location and extent file for the Mid-Valley Metro District's request to extend water and sewer service to the Tree Farm, followed by an executive session at 3:30 p.m. The agenda has been arranged to allow the Tree Farm discussion to begin at 4 p.m., as it has for the last seven meetings.

While Thursday’s meeting is open to the public, community members are asked to note that public comment was closed at the Oct. 22 hearing. The planning commission will review a response from staff on the recently completed parking study and requested variances, as well as an update to the proposed affordable housing plan. Following the discussion, the planning commission will begin its deliberations.

The Tree Farm PUD encompasses 71 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 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.
