Planning and Development

Smith Ranch

In 2014, The Town of Silverthorne requested proposals from selected development teams for the planning and construction of a workforce housing neighborhood on the Town-owned parcel known as Smith Ranch.  Upon evaluation of the responses, the Town determined that the timing for development of the Smith Ranch property was not optimal.

Development of Smith Ranch continues to be a goal of the Silverthorne Town Council.

The following are reference materials that provide background information on previous design and development proposals for the Town owned Smith Ranch Property.

Silver Mountain Village (aka Smith Ranch) Technical Appendices - Silver Mountain Village was one of the earlier development proposals on the Smith Ranch Property.  A project submittal was made in 1999, and was in conjunction with a high end residential development called Buffalo Mountain Village located across the valley from the Smith Ranch property. Silver Mountain Village proposal was ultimately terminated in 2002.  The following documentation was produced as part of that proposal:   governing documents

Red Peak Village - The Red Peak Village proposal was submitted in 2006, it included those portions of the Smith Ranch property which were not previously zoned commercial.  Red Peak Village was brought forward by a private developer desiring to meet the town need for affordable housing.  Eventually, after attempting to negotiate a workable project, the developer sold the property to the Town of Silverthorne.  The following documents were submitted as part of that proposal: 
    Red Peak Village Draft Fiscal Impact Analysis    
    Red Peak Village Conceptual Maps
