Planners to review Lake plat


The Hayden Planning Commission on Thursday will review a preliminary plat for the Lake Village subdivision.

The project, proposed by West Routt Properties, will involve about 200 residential units and a small industrial park south of Sagewood.

Lake Village, which is the first phase of The Villages at Hayden project, would be composed of about 112 acres that have been annexed into the town.

The Planning Commission, after two meetings, approved a revised sketch plan for Lake Village in February.

Although developers are close to meeting the requirements of the preliminary plat, there are some issues involving roads, trails, covenants and other aspects of the subdivision, planning consultant Tim Katers said.

He is recommending the commission table its decision on the preliminary plat until June to give developers time to resolve those issues.

"They are pretty darn close," Katers said. "They are doing some nice stuff."

Developers in West Routt Properties plan to build Lake Village in four filings totaling about 160 single-family lots and five multifamily sites.

The first filing, directly south of Sagewood, will involve mostly single-family lots as well as a lake and some trails.

Twenty-one light industrial lots in the southeast corner of the project, as well as a parkway to Routt County Road 53, would comprise the second phase of the development.

The parkway or bypass eventually could link C.R. 53 with Routt County Road 37 to the east.

In his notes to the Planning Commission, Katers notes that preliminary plat, which brings the conceptual plan together with "engineering reality" is the most important part of the review process.

The preliminary plat for Lake Village includes landscape details for the lake and park planned for the project and examples of the various types of homes that will be available to buyers.

Developers plan to build the homes, constructing some elements such as walls and trusses on site and also providing on-site financing services.

The preliminary plat review also will be a public hearing for the project.
