Parker is expecting a significant increase in homes within the next decade. An investment group is requesting an amendment to Douglas County’s master plan in order to build 350 new homes, west of The Pinery and southwest of South Parker and Scott Roads.
According to the Parker Chronicle, the requested amendment is to the 2030 Comprehensive Master Plan and would change 155 acres of agricultural land currently used for grazing and hay and alfalfa farming to an urban land-use designation.
Scheduled to review the request on Aug. 11, the Douglas County Planning Commission will make their final decision on the new development. Once approved, the subdivision would be divided by Cherry Creek. The investors want to have a “low to moderate densities similar to The Pinery and up to a maximum of 312 single family lots”.
On the other side, the western part of Stone Creek Ranch would be in a more non-urban designation. The community would have about 38 homes with the rest being a preserved open space for a possible future park.
“Stone Creek Ranch will offer a unique living environment that is compatible with and complementary to existing and planned developments in the area,” the company’s proposal said in the recent article. “The intent is to develop the property into several villages planned around parks, trails and open space amenities.”
