Roaring Fork Club seeks expansion

BASALT ” Nearly 18 months after the Roaring Fork Club withdrew an application to expand its residential golf community in Basalt, the partners have returned to the review process with a scaled-down application.

The private club is seeking town government approval for eight luxury cabins similar to what exist on the property; three single-family homes; eight affordable housing units; a new administration building; a new gym for members; and a building for a children’s camp.

The Basalt Planning and Zoning Commission held its first hearing on the proposal Tuesday night. None of the board members raised any issues of concern. No formal vote will be taken until March 18.

The site eyed for development is within the town limits and the urban growth boundary ” an area where the town has determined is appropriate for development.

The club’s last development proposal sparked a lengthy land use battle, in large part because that plan required going outside the town’s urban growth boundary. That proposal included 32 luxury cabins; 18 single-family homes; 36 affordable housing units; and the kids’ camp.

See Thursday’s Aspen Times for more on the expansion proposal.
