Open house Wednesday on Tree Farm project

Staff report

The development team working on a substantial residential and commercial project in the midvalley will hold an informal open house for the public Wednesday.

The Tree Farm proposal will be open for scrutiny from 4 to 7 p.m. at the Kodiak Ski Club at 401 Tree Farm Drive in El Jebel. Attendees will be able to review plans, ask questions and make comments. Interested members of the public are asked to drop in at any time during that three-hour window. The event will be held rain or shine. Sure Thing Burgers will cater food and beverages.

The open house is unrelated to Eagle County government’s review. The Roaring Fork Valley Planning Commission will hold its first public meeting on the project June 4.

Landowner Ace Lane has applied through Woody Ventures LLC for approvals for 400 residences and 127,800 square feet of commercial space, including a room with an estimated 100 rooms. The total square footage of the project would be about 578,000. It would be phased in over several years based on demand.

To find the open house, turn north at the lower Willits Lane intersection with Highway 82 and follow signs on Tree Farm Drive to the venue.
