The City's New Submittal Process Is In Place
The City of Colorado Springs is taking a step towards digital review of land use applications. While online submittal is not yet available (until late 2018), you will be required to use a dropbox account to send plans, studies and application materials. This digital transmittal will eliminate the need for multiple hard copies. All original downloads will be immediately available online for review and final plans will be digitally stamped. New checklists will walk you through the requirements. Give City Planning a call at 719-385-5905 for more details. See the introductory letter and user guide.

Prime Development Opportunity in Fountain Posted 6/15/17
80 AC up to 273 AC of this prime development opportunity is available in the northeast quadrant of Fountain, CO just 15 miles south of the Colorado Springs CBD. The property was annexed to the City of Fountain in 1989 concurrent with an approved conceptual PUD mixed use master plan for the community. The topography is flat to gently rolling with spectacular mountain views. The Jimmy Camp West Tributary and the Fountain Mutual Irrigation canal traverse the property. These features provide an exceptional opportunity to develop a residential community along with walking trails and a natural habitat for wildlife and birds. See Details
All communities have exposure to natural disaster potential, be it landslides, flooding, fires, hurricanes, earthquakes, tornadoes, etc. Our industry takes these geological hazards - and all hazards - seriously, and is dedicated to continuing to work with the City on these issues. The HBA favors full disclosure of these potential risks so that consumers can make a fully informed, intelligent decision when it comes to buying a lot or home.
