Commissioners approve rezoning property behind Safeway for 70 homes

-A A +A

Jefferson County commissioners on Tuesday unanimously approved rezoning property behind the Evergreen Safeway for 70 homes.

The 12.5 acres that also runs north behind Valentine Seevers & Associates and Bank of the West was rezoned from Commercial 1 to Planned Development. The development will be called Pinecrest Mountain Village.

Commissioners pulled the request from the consent agenda to discuss concerns about trash and debris on the property, but Jeffco Planning and Zoning staff said everything had been resolved.

Mike Madrid with the planning office had said the proposal called for smaller homes — something for young families or empty nesters.

However, because this was a rezoning request, specifics of the expected home sizes and other details aren’t available. Those will be made available when the developer comes to the county for approval for the residential development.

Madrid had said the Planning and Zoning Department received 13 letters in favor of the proposal and one against. The proposal was unanimously approved by the Planning Commission.
