Major Planning Cases

Current Land Development Cases Map

Arapahoe County's Planning Cases map displays all land development cases actively under review in unincorporated Arapahoe County. 



Land Development Code Update

Arapahoe County is updating its land development code to improve our process and offer alternatives to Planned Unit Development zoning. Please visit our Land Development Code Update page for more information about the project, including the approved Planned Unit Development regulations.

Skyview Village Townhomes

Alpert Development is proposing 29 townhome units to be located at 1650 South Quebec Way, just south of the Brookdale Highline assisted living facility and southwest of the Highline Canal Trail. The property is currently zoned as a Senior Housing Planned Unit Development (SH-PUD); the zoning allows up to 100 nursing care units at a density of up to 40 dwellings/acre. The applicant is proposing a rezoning to allow 14.5 dwellings/acre on the 2-acre site.  
If you would like more information about the Preliminary Development Plan, please contact Molly Orkild-Larson, Arapahoe County Senior Planner. If you have questions about the proposed amendment to the Four Square Mile Sub-Area Plan, please contact Julio Iturreria.

Prosper Development

Arapahoe County is currently reviewing a number of cases related to the Prosper development located south of Interstate 70 and N Watkins Road. These cases will eventually have public hearings and we will post the dates as soon as we know them.

The County approved the initial zoning - the Prosper Preliminary Development Plan (PDP) - in early 2015. When fully developed, the Prosper development will cover 5,130 acres (8 square miles) and will include up to 9,000 housing units and 8 million square feet of commercial/office/industrial uses. If you'd like to review the entire Prosper PDP you can download the very large PDP (180 MB) here. You may also download the much smaller Prosper land use plan for an overview of the project.

Initial phases of the Prosper development will rely on Denver Basin aquifer ground water. However, the development will eventually use a combination of renewable surface water, reclaimed wastewater, and lawn irrigation return flow. Per the Prosper water supply plan (70 MB file), when fully developed, 73% of the water in Prosper will be from those renewable sources.

Prosper Water Treatment Plant - The County is currently reviewing a permit for Prosper's initial water treatment plant. This Location & Extent document shows where it's located and what it will look like. The Board of County Commissioners approved the plant on June 27, 2017.

Prosper Preliminary Plat and Final Development Plan - This is the first phase of the project, located east of N Watkins Road. The Final Development Plan includes 977 single-family homes on 754 acres of land. The Final Development Plan includes proposed landscaping and design standards for the potential homes. The preliminary plat shows more detail on the lot layouts. The applicant's letter of intent offers a general overview of the project. The Board of County Commissioners approved both of these items on August 15, 2017.
