The Angler Mountain Vistas in Silverthorne received approval of the final site plan from Silverthorne City Council on Wednesday, September 22. The long-awaited development will soon bring 17 new homes to market price in town.

Single-family homes were offered by Tim Crane with Compass Homes and Blake Shutler with Summit Homes Construction. The new community will be located just south of Angler Mountain Ranch on Angler Mountain Ranch Road South.

There are four types of buildings included in the project plan, each intended to accommodate different conditions and levels on the site. In an earlier discussion with the Summit Daily News, Silverthorne’s planning chief Lina Lesmes said the development would likely go vertical this fall if it received final approval.



According to the city council agenda, the original 35.81-acre parcel on which these homes were proposed constitutes the Angler Mountain Vistas Subdivision. The 17 houses will be built on two land suitable for conversion. Another leaflet was dedicated to the town of Silverthorne as an open public space.

City planner Caitlin Jacobshagen told the meeting that they will be ground-floor homes, meaning there will be multiple single-family homes located on individual lots.



Applicants began installing the infrastructure on-site after receiving preliminary approval in April, but the group needed the final approved site plan to start applying for building permits.

The applicant plans to partially pave Angler Mountain Ranch South Road, the primary access road to the development site, and will dedicate the road to the town as a right-of-way. The site also contains a private road, Fly Caster Lane, which will be maintained by the Homeowners Association and will provide access to six of the buildings. Several trails also provide pedestrian access to the site.

Council member Mike Spry raised concerns over the city’s right-of-way allocation, noting that it simply means the city has another road to maintain and clear. He asked what the compromise was for something like this.

Jacobshagen said the developer paid for all of the initial construction and paving of the road. Deputy general manager Mark Leidal said he would also offer a 1% property transfer fee that would go to the city’s general fund, which should offset the additional costs incurred by the city in providing services to the residential area. .

Bobby Craig, with Arapahoe Architects, said the changes between the preliminary site plan and the final plan were mostly architectural.

“The biggest architectural change was the dressing of the facades of the street,” said Craig.

Craig said the change came after receiving comments from city staff and the planning commission. They added porches to the sides of all companionway units – 14 of the 17 homes. Craig said they also improved the architectural materials to keep them consistent with a “mountain-modern” theme.

“I can’t believe we’re sort of at the end of this,” Silverthorne Mayor Ann-Marie Sandquist said at the meeting. The city has been working with the developers on the planning of this project since 2009.

Kevin Berg, of Summit Homes Construction, the general development contractor, said they would not comment further on the project.
