Roxborough residents may have seen some movement in regards to the Sterling Ranch development these last couple of weeks. To start, Sterling Ranch Development Co. broke ground on June 6, 2015.
“Today was the kickoff. We’ve been through all of the permitting, we’ve had unanimous approval by the county several times,” said Harold Smethills, founder and managing director of Sterling Ranch Development Co.
During the groundbreaking event, Gov. John Hickenlooper touched on the heavily debated water topic in regards to where Sterling Ranch will acquire it. On May 29, 2015, Hickenlooper signed House Bill 15-1016 into law, which will allow the developers to collect and use rainwater.
Sterling Ranch also unveiled its improved website which provides more information on all the components that comprise Sterling Ranch.
Providence Village is still expected to be the first of nine villages at Sterling Ranch. 655 single family detached homes and 144 single family attached homes will be built along side 85-acres of open space, a K-8 school, church, civic center and a recreation center.
