Final Hearing on Legacy Pines East Application

Board of County Commissioners (BOCC)

September 26, 2017 at 2:30 PM

Hearing Room at 100 Third St. in Castle Rock

 

This is the last opportunity for BTR residents to voice their opinions regarding the proposed sub-division being directly built to the North of BTR.    Although the development primarily impacts residents who live on lots 1-10, we need community members to support their neighbors who are concerned that the depiction of a road running parallel to the back of their properties in the current sketch plan does not have significant green belt buffers or “community separators” (Section 3 of Comprehensive Master Plan).

 

If a permanent roadway access versus the current existing emergency access between Legacy Pines and BTR is not disputed, a paved thoroughfare to Burning Ridge Drive could eventually be built, thus impacting over 27 BTR homeowners living along Burning Ridge Drive/Burning Tree Drive with an increase in traffic volume, noise, and pollution.  If commuters begin to take other short-cuts through the BTR neighborhood, additional residents will be impacted adversely. 

 

Please attend the hearing whether you testify or not.  It is important for elected officials to know we want the construction of new sub-divisions to meet the needs of residents living in surrounding communities.

Posted (05/03/2017) Annual Adopt-A-Road Project

                                     ANNUAL ADOPT-A-ROAD PROJECT  

                            SATURDAY, May 6, 9:00 am – 11:00 am

Meet us at the corner of Burning Ridge Drive and Burning Tree Trail (the same corner where the trash bash dumpsters were located) for this annual neighborhood road clean-up event.  Doughnuts and drinks will be provided, as well as orange vests and trash bags for you to collect trash. 

Attendees will form teams to ensure coverage of all roads within BTR.  As always, participating in this event is a terrific way for children or high schoolers to complete community service hours required for various clubs or graduation.   Keeping our neighborhood clean and pleasing to the eye has historically been a matter of pride for those of us living here, and Adopt-a-Road event is one way of maintaining the neighborhood’s beauty. 

Each of us can individually do our part throughout the year by properly disposing of cigarette butts and trash that makes its way into our yards and bordering easements, and being mindful of and taking measures to correct visible violations of the BTR covenants

Posted (05/03/2017) Save Franktown

IMPORTANT NOTICE

A request to rezone the open acreage on the SE corner of Highway 83 and Highway

86 is making its way to Douglas County for final consideration. The Franktown Village

Proposed Development requests rezoning for construction of nearly 300 residences

on 63 acres, along with 180,000 square feet of shops and offices. Franktown

is presently zoned for one house per five-acre lot – in compliance with the rural

character required by the Comprehensive Master Plan.

 

WHY DO WE NEED TO SAVE OUR WATER?

All Franktown area homes rely on underground aquifers to feed their wells. While

alternate sources of water are continually investigated, for the foreseeable future our

water supply – drinking, cooking, washing, flushing, irrigating – comes from an

underground aquifer. All our aquifers are finite; when we use them up, they're gone!

The primary Franktown domestic aquifer is dropping rapidly due to demand from rapid

growth. Some Franktown wells have already gone dry, and drilling into the next

aquifer costs up to $60,000. Drilling to a deeper aquifer would cost even more.

 

WHAT ADDITIONAL IMPACT MIGHT THE DEVELOPMENT POSE TO THE

FRANKTOWN RURAL COMMUNITY?

Schools: High density housing will add approximately 100 students to the already

crowded Franktown Elementary: larger classes, detached modular classrooms, longer

walks through outdoor weather, and increased wear and tear on the large group

spaces - cafeteria, library, and gym, which are all designed for fewer students.

Traffic: Franktown Village's offices, shops and families would generate an additional

8,300 daily vehicle trips through the two-lane 83/86 intersection, as estimated for the

developer by LSC Transportation Consultants. That adds to the already congested

corridor for Franktown, Elizabeth, and other rapidly growing communities to the east.

 

IF THIS REQUEST FOR REZONING TROUBLES YOU, ACT NOW!

A proposed rezoning request must be approved by Douglas County government, in

two steps: 1) By the DC Planning Commission and 2) By your elected officials, the

County Commissioners. If you are worried about the proposed development, which

would significantly change the distinct Franktown Area rural identity for current and

future citizens, take action now!

 

Express Your Concerns by Writing or Calling. A polite, handwritten note, email

or phone message, stating your specific concerns - water, traffic, schools, crime - is

suggested. All Franktown residents, young and old, are encouraged to contact

Douglas County via USPS or email - the more the better.
