Review resumes for Tree Farm project in El Jebel

The Roaring Fork Valley Regional Planning Commission will resume review of Ace Lane’s Tree Farm project at 4 p.m. today at the Eagle County office building in El Jebel, adjacent to Crown Mountain Park.

The meeting will include a continued discussion of the planned-unit development guide, which was previously discussed July 2 and Aug. 6. The guide helps specify uses in each planning area. The discussion is anticipated to take two to three hours. Public comment will be taken immediately following that discussion.

The meeting also will include a work session on the 1041 water permits associated with the Tree Farm.

The planning commission doesn’t anticipate a vote until a later meeting. The commission advises the Eagle County commissioners on land-use matters in the Roaring Fork Valley portion of the county.

Lane’s 71 acres is located on the north side of Highway 82, across from Whole Foods Market. His existing ski lake will be incorporated into the project. Lane is seeking approvals for as many as 400 residential units and approximately 135,000 square feet of commercial, office, lodging and light industrial space. There will be 42 acres of active and passive open space.
