Northstar Land LLC (Northstar) has submitted a sketch plan to Douglas County Community Planning and Sustainable Development for subdivision approval of a 31.3-acre project in Castle Pines Village that will include 53 single family detached residential lots.
According to the sketch plan, the residential lots will be divided onto approximately 14 acres, with lot sizes ranging in size from 0.15 acres up to 0.53 acres, and an average of 1.69 dwelling units per acre. The remaining 16.5 acres of the project will be divided into seven tracts of open space to be owned by the Castle Pines Homes Association and Castle Pines Metropolitan District (CPMD).
The project is located within the southeast portion of Castle Pines Planned Development (Castle Pines Village) and will be accessed from the existing Castle Pines Drive South, near Remington Place, adjacent to the west side of I-25. The property currently has a mix of tall ponderosa pines, douglas fir trees, and gambel oak, and is host to mule deer and elk.
According to the applicant’s project narrative, all roadways, potable water distribution systems, sanitary sewer collection systems, storm drainage, and water quality improvements required to provide service to the 53 residential lots are proposed to be designed and constructed according to CPMD and county standards. Potable water and sanitary sewer service will be provided by CPMD.
Northstar’s spokesperson and project engineer Matthew Buster said the project is intended to be developed in three phases; three separate subdivision plats and construction drawings of infrastructure associated with each phase will be submitted for county review and approval.
Douglas County sent the sketch plan out to several referral agencies for comment, including Happy Canyon HOA, The Village Homes Association, and the City of Castle Pines. The next step for Northstar representatives is to address outstanding issues and/or concerns raised by the referral agencies. Northstar held an open house for Castle Pines Village residents in December to provide an overview of the project.
