Major Planning Cases

Current Land Development Cases

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.

Prospect Village/Lugano Waffle House Specific Development Plan (Case SDP18-001)

This project is located west of the intersection of E Iliff Avenue and S Dayton Way on a vacant pad site in the Prospect Village/Lugano development. The Board of County Commissioners approved the original Final Development Plan for this site in March, 2009. The applicant proposes reducing the pad site building square footage, modifying the building architecture, and allowing a 24-hour restaurant (with no drive-through or outdoor seating). The Planning Commission will hold a public hearing regarding this proposal at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, October 16, 2018. The hearing will be in the Arapahoe Room at 6954 S Lima Street, Centennial CO 80112. 

Avere on the High Line (Case P17-018)

This project is located at 1860-1890 S Quebec Way, just north of the Quebec Way trailhead and adjacent to the High Line Canal. The applicant proposes a Planned Unit Development zoning to allow 56 townhome units on 4.12 acres, for a density of 13.59 dwellings per acre. The Planning Commission voted to recommend approval of this project at their meeting on September 25, 2018. This item will be scheduled at an upcoming Board of County Commissioners meeting.

Conoco Swan Well Site

The proposed Swan well site is located northwest of the intersection of E 6th Avenue and N Imboden Road, within the future Prosper development. ConocoPhillips is proposing one well and four 500 BBL low-profile tanks, along with other supporting equipment. If you have any questions, you may contact Diane Kocis, Arapahoe County Energy Specialist.

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.
