Franktown Development Meeting for HOA Representatives May 1

There has been a new Franktown Development Plan submitted to Douglas County and some residents within Franktown  are inviting all Franktown HOA representatives to join them for a meeting on May 14th at 6:30 p.m. in  the big conference room at the Franktown Fire Station.

Here is the email from some Franktown residents planning the meeting:

“On April 29, 2014 a group met to discuss the latest application for the Franktown development just recently submitted to the Douglas County Planning Commission. Present were Rob Graft (Franktown Citizen Coalition), Mike Mullinex (Burning Tree), and Jennifer Drybread, Rich and Diana Love, Sally Swain, Larry Falter, and Allan Angus (Deerfield HOA Fact Finding Committee). The group discussed the short timeline for review and input to the Planning Commission once the application is sent out for comment. After the application is made public by the Planning Commission, there are only 21 days to get your comments in. Once the application is available for review and comment, this group plans on setting up a meeting, which all HOAs and individuals can attend, in order to present the current information we will have at that time. After this meeting, it is important that all of the HOA’s, and any individuals who wish, write a letter immediately to the Douglas County Planning Commission, addressed to Mr. Joe Fowler, to delineate its/their position on the proposed development. Mr. Fowler emphasized that letters were very important–the more the better–so both HOA letters and individual letters should be sent.

IMPORTANT: WE ARE TRYING TO GET THE WORD OUT. COULD EVERYONE WHO READS THIS PLEASE CONTACT INDIVIDUALS AND HOAs WHO MAY NOT BE AWARE AND REFER THEM TO THIS SITE FOR INFORMATION. ALSO, WE NEED EMAILS AND/OR PHONE NUMBERS OF THE PRINCIPALS/OFFICERS IN ALL FRANKTOWN HOAs IN ORDER TO CONTACT THEM ABOUT THE MEETING. PLEASE SEND THAT INFORMATION TO RICH LOVE, RLLOVE1@MSN.COM OR PHONE HIM AT 303-814-8704.

We have set up a room at the Franktown Fire Hall for a meeting of interested HOA representatives at 6:30 pm on Wednesday May 14th.”

Spring is here, and that brings back the wildlife.

Mountain lions and bears have been spotted in Franktown, so be sure to be careful of your pets and animals. Keep them close, if you can, and stay alert. Be sure to add your comments below, especially if you see a bear and/or mountain lion and post the locations.

Thanks!

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
