Home Depot knocks at Silverthorne’s door, again

For the third time, Home Depot is submitting a proposal to come to Silverthorne. The big box would be 100,000 square feet on a parcel south of intestate I-70, near the outlet stores. In order to deal with traffic concerns, Home Depot developers would extend South Adams Avenue by two lanes, with a median in the center. The Colorado Department of Transportation needs to approve the access. Home Depot would also need approval from the town and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, in order to essentially move a wetlands area from the river to Cottonwood Park. Previous proposals failed due to concerns about traffic and the environment. The chain is closing about 15 stores and abandoning plans to open 50 others, but it continues to show interest in Silverthorne because of the region’s prosperity.

Silverthorne approves affordable housing

silverthorne realty Silverthorne approves affordable housingIt looks like the 51.5 acres of Smith Ranch will be filled with about 220 multi- and single-family, affordable homes, thanks to preliminary approval by the town of Silverthorne. Named the Red Peak Village, the development would be the first of its kind in Silverthorne real estate. The planning commission unanimously recommended the town to deny developer Tim Crane’s affordable housing proposal because it didn’t include enough parking and it seemed too dense, but the town approved it unanimously.
Mayor Dave Koop commented that the economy would not grow without the housing. The development would include a park, daycare, trails and open space, as well as market-priced properties.

Fire mitigation in Keystone

Homeowners in Keystone can sigh a bit of relief knowing that workers will begin removing dead lodge-pole pines on national forest around Keystone.

It will take three years and $1.4 million to thin the 1,000 acres planned, which is the second largest mitigation project in the nation.

It will take down trees in the forest, all the way down to the south side of Highway 6 near Frey Gulch and around Summit Cove and Swan Moutain Road, up to Sapphire Point. That will diminish the possibility of wildfires breaking out and destroying surrounding homes, because thinning makes it easier for firefighters to stop any fire before it spreads to residences.

Meanwhile, Keystone property owners are also taking care of dead trees on their lots.
