An overloaded traffic light is one of the biggest hurdles for backers of an El Jebel development proposal, but another traffic-related fee may also prove to be an obstacle.

Another controversial development proposal is being considered for the El Jebel area, with Eagle County Commissioners reviewing The Fields proposal on Tuesday night.

Next Tuesday, Eagle County Commissioners will consider a proposal to build approximately a hundred homes near El Jebel. But the development, called The Fields, now has two recommendations against it.

The Fields Development Group

  Traffic signals in the El Jebel area have gotten a lot of criticism in recent months. Now a developer has a proposal for one of them, before Eagle County Commissioners review the proposal next month.

  Eagle County Commissioners are getting together to talk about big issues, and they want to do that in the Roaring Fork Valley. Housing, climate change, and early childhood development are the first topics for what are being called “Community Conversations.”

LANDWEST Planning

The proposed Tree Farm development has gotten a lot of attention in the last several months, and it’s not even in the final review yet. On Thursday night, planning commissioners responsible for what’s developed in the El Jebel area will consider whether to support the project.

Officials in the mid valley are continuing to look at a major development proposal near Whole Foods. The controversial Tree Farm plan could mean as many as 400 hundred residential units and more than a 130,000 square feet in commercial development. But if the property was a few football field lengths to the southeast, it would go through a whole different set of requirements.

Officials in the midvalley are trying to find a way to join forces on two big issues: childcare and affordable housing. Aspen Public Radio’s Elise Thatcher was at an unusual collaborative meeting last night and has this report.
