Will the Flying Horse Development increase residential density?
The sketch plan allows an increase in the maximum number of single-family residential dwelling units from 202 to 846, resulting in a net increase of 644 single-family residential units for Flying Horse North. The sketch plan identifies a mix in residential densities ranging from one (1) residential unit per five (5) acres, to three (3) residential units per acre. Lower density areas are planned along the perimeter of the sketch plan area, and higher density areas are planned in the internal portions of the sketch plan areas and near the commercial areas.
The proposed sketch plan represents an increase in gross residential density within the entire development area from approximately one (1) residential unit per five (5) acres to approximately one (1) residential unit per 1.5 acres.
Specific development proposals, specific densities, and specific lot layouts, as well as lot sizes, will be determined with subsequent preliminary plan/PUD submittals.
Will the Flying Horse Development affect water resources?
Findings of sufficiency with respect to water quality, quantity, and dependability are not required with sketch plan approvals, but will need to be made with subsequent preliminary plan and/or final plat approvals for development within the sketch plan amendment area.
Will the Flying Horse Development increase noise/traffic in the area?
The master traffic impact study estimates the development will generate approximately 18,108 average daily trips. Upon assumed development build-out, signals at the intersections of State Highway 83 / Stagecoach Road and Black Forest Road /and Old Stagecoach Road may be warranted. Revised traffic impact studies are required at each stage in the process.
What are the next steps?
The Board of County Commissioners has determined that the sketch plan met the intent of the Master Plan. Specific development proposals, densities, lot layouts, as well as lot sizes, will be determined with subsequent preliminary plan/PUD Submittals.
