Franktown Town Village Developement

Hi all,

There have been some rumors floating around Franktown about development in Franktown, and below is some information.

There is a development for the area south of Hwy 86 and east of Hwy 83, that will sit behind the south row of commercial buildings at Hwy 86 and will continue south to the Franktown Elementary school, that has been submitted to Douglas Planning Department. According to a local Franktown resident, who: spoke directly to to Joe Fowler, of the Douglas County Planning Dept. “The plan has been submitted, but not approved. Hearings, etc and much planning and/or details remain to be determined.   It has not even gone through the “referral” stage, where the project is sent out to other bureaucratic entities for their comments. Local HOAs haven’t been notified yet by county…. but they will be.”

You can review the development submitted to the Douglas County Planning Department by going to: http://www.FranktownVillage.com

The Douglas County Master Plan is what all future developments must follow, so it is important to know what changes the county may be considering:
“The County is going to update the Master Plan and here is the schedule for open house meetings if people want to attend.

I am attaching a memo that we recently provided to the Planning Commission updating them on the process. It includes both the public meeting schedule and draft revision proposals. The County’s Public Affairs Department has also set up a webpage for posting information about the CMP Update at:http://www.douglas.co.us/cmp2030/propose….
