Planning commission to hear new subdivision application


— The city Planning Commission will hear an application tonight for a new residential subdivision along the outskirts of the Sheraton Golf Course.

Graystone Park, a 75.3-acre piece of land made up primarily of the golf course, will

go before the Planning Commission for a major development permit and a rezone.

The group hopes to develop on 19 lots off of the golf course, most of them near the intersection of Clubhouse Drive and Steamboat Boulevard.

Nearby residents have written letters opposing certain aspects of the proposal, including the relocation of the entrance to the golf club from Clubhouse Drive to Steamboat Boulevard.

The owners of the development group, Ski Time Square Development, also own the Sheraton Steamboat Resort and Conference Center, the Sheraton golf course and commercial buildings in Ski Time Square.

Chuck Porter, general manager of the Sheraton and head of the development group, said the group hopes to build a development that complements other developments near the golf course. The project will necessitate moving the entrance to the golf course from Clubhouse Drive to Steamboat Boulevard.

The 59-acre golf course would be designated open space and development rights would be removed. If anyone wants to build on it, it would have to be brought before City Council.
