Clear Creek Crossing
In 2005, the land west of Interstate 70 and south of Highway 58 was annexed into the City, and rezoned to a Planned Commercial Development in 2006 with development plans for 185,000 square foot Cabela’s store. Shortly thereafter Cabela’s Board of Directors decided to no longer “self-develop” their properties, and the project did not move forward at that time. In 2011, the property was rezoned to accommodate a smaller Cabela’s store in addition to a 177,000 square foot Walmart, and a total of nearly 1,000,000 square feet of retail/office space. In 2012, Cabela’s corporate made a decision to locate two stores along the I-25 corridor at either end of the Metro area, both of which opened in 2013. As such, the plans for this site did not move forward.
In December 2016, Evergreen Development Company purchased the land from Cabela’s. Evergreen has submitted an application to the City to rezone the property to Planned Mixed Use Development, proposing to expand the list of allowed uses to include not just retail and commercial uses, but also residential, hospitality, and entertainment uses. The rezoning includes an Outline Development Plan (ODP) which divides the property into 8 planning areas, a Vision Book which establishes the intended design and architectural themes and materials, and Design Pattern Book which includes the substantive development regulations.
The Planned Mixed Use Development documents may be accessed here:
Public hearings for this proposed rezoning are scheduled as follows:
· Planning Commission: January 18, 2018
· City Council: February 12, 2018
All public meetings are held at 7pm in City Council Chambers.
If the Planned Mixed Use Development is approved by City Council on February 12, a Specific Development Plan (SDP) will be required (presumably multiple SDPs will be received for a site this large), in addition to a subdivision plat to create new lot lines.
Evergreen Development has hosted a series of meetings to update the community on the project. Information on these meetings can be found on the developer’s website: Jan 3, 2018 is available here.
