Emma project goes back to step one
September 18, 2008
EMMA ” A development proposal for a ranch in the Emma area moved back one square in Eagle County’s review process this week.
The Eagle County Commissioners told the developer of Coleman Ranch his project must go back for review by the Roaring Fork Regional Planning Commission because of a major revision.
Dan Coleman’s 24-acre property on the Eagle County-Pitkin County line. He initially sought approval for an eight lot subdivision. All the lots would have been developed in the Eagle County portion of the property and the remaining six acres in Pitkin County would have been open space.
The proposal faced stiff opposition from members of the Emma Caucus and other neighbors during a hearing in July. A revised plan was back before the Eagle County Commissioners on Tuesday. Coleman is now seeking approval for three lots rather than eight.
In addition to telling Coleman his plan must go back for review by the planning commission, he was strongly encouraged to meet again with neighbors in Eagle County to try to address their concerns, according to Commissioner Sara Fisher.
The proposal will go the planning commission at a meeting in El Jebel on Oct. 16, according to Bob Narracci of the Eagle County planning department.
