Total size: 508 acres

Open space and parks: 147 acres

Development area: 361 acres

Start of infrastructure construction: 2010

Start of homebuilding: 2011

Build-out: 20 years

Housing units: 2,044*

Commercial uses: 340,000 square feet*

Community housing units: 511**

Real estate transfer fee: 1 percent***

* Under a large-format retail alternative land-use plan, the number of housing units would be reduced to 1,818 and one of three mixed-use "village centers" would be replaced with a 348,000-square-foot retail center with space for two large-format retailers and a grocery store.

** Number includes a mix of for-sale and rental housing options for households earning between 70 percent and 160 percent of the area median income.

*** Initial sales and community housing units excluded. The transfer fee would be dedicated to community enhancements and housing affordability, and a specified amount would be earmarked to provide a permanent funding source for the Yampa Valley Housing Authority.

Danny , I'm against this project , I would get behind it if just once somebody would explain how Steamboat is going to handle 4000 to 6000 more cars on the road..?? how ?? 2000 homes with at least 2 cars per home maybe 3 or 4 cars , you don't know exactly how many cars do you ?? my neighbor hood has at least 2 to 4 cars per house ...?? CDOT is not going to help ...the neighborhood looks nice..that's not the problem , all I see here is numbers but no real world solution for the traffic ...plus Hayden and west of town are still growing as well , so there will be additional traffic impact from west hwy 40 . If there's any snow at all on the road during the winter the traffic already backs up past Steamboat 2 . The light at the 7-11 will be hidious . Does anybody on the planning commision live west of town or North ..?? I don't think you guys really get it ....so enlighten me on your side of the story ...thanks

Freeby, 700 is the only entity that has proposed any solutioins and money to solve this traffic problem. The traffic will continue regardless of 700's status, traffic is a byproduct of jobs. The big problem here is the city and their total denial that a problem exists. All city personnel have their marching orders, and I can not remember one of them admitting that we have a traffic problem. Under Joe Stalin this would make sense, but it is inconceivable that city employees would all march to the same drummer. I guess they are not risk takers. Traffic is our major problem for the future and we seem to have PeeWee Herman at the helm.
