A Colorado Springs home builder wants to bring 72 attached dwellings to Englewood.
The Galiant Homes home builder met with Englewood residents on Dec. 5 as part of an informal presentation that detailed its desire to build what it describes as 72 attached single-family homes on vacant land on the north and south side of Adriatic Place at the southeast corner of Evans Avenue and Zuni Street.
To build the homes, Galiant Homes wants to change the current zoning of the area to a planned unit development — a rezoning process that establishes specific zoning regulations and development criteria for a particular site, according to a letter sent out to residents announcing the Dec. 5 meeting. The area is currently a low density single and multi-dwelling unit residential district — an area where multiple separate housing units can be contained in one building or several buildings.
Additionally, Galiant Homes wants to install a road at Adriatic Place from South Zuni Street to South Vallejo Street. It's currently a dirt road with overhead utilities. Along with the attached dwellings, Galiant Homes is proposing open space that would include grilling and a playground.
In order for the zoning change to occur, neighborhood meetings must take place that allow for a developer to hear input and questions from neighbors. Following that, Englewood's Planning and Zoning Commission would listen to opinions from residents in a public hearing. The commission would then have the choice to either recommend the zoning change to Englewood City Council or deny it.
The proposed zoning change hasn't made it to Englewood's Planning and Zoning Commission yet, according to Cate Townley, the chair of the commission.
