What’s the latest on the Pine Canyon and Pioneer Ranch proposals? Are there plans within these developments to preserve that forest and protect our wildlife neighbors?

If that’s not In the proposals, could town make that a priority as we negotiate with developers?
 

The Pine Canyon rezoning application is currently under review for development with Douglas County, not the Town. 

The Pioneer Ranch annexation was originally submitted in May 2018 and is currently pending resubmission. Learn more about the proposal.

Developments within the Town must have a minimum of 20% open space, either public or private. We also require dedication for public land to be used for parks, schools and, potentially, additional open space. However, we don’t have any requirements on preserving trees. 

The Town recognizes the value of the forested areas on these properties, not only for its beauty and uniqueness in an urban area, but also for wildlife habitat it provides.
