Board Approves Nine Mile Corner Rezoning

The Board approved on Second Reading an ordinance approving the Nine Mile Corner Planned Development (PD) rezoning. The purpose of the ordinance is for consideration of a rezoning from CC-Community Commercial and PD-Planned Development to PD-Planned Development for the Nine Mile mixed-use development.


Nine Mile Corner is approximately 47 acres in size and located on the southeast corner of Arapahoe Road and Highway 287. The proposed PD rezoning would divide the site into two Planning Areas. Planning Area 1 is located on the western portion of the site adjacent to Highway 287 and Arapahoe Road, is designated as Commercial/Retail, and comprises approximately 33 acres of the site. Planning Area 2 is located on the eastern portion of the site, is designated as High Density Residential, and comprises approximately 14 acres of the site. Planning Area 2, also retains the Uses Permitted by Right in the High Density Residential (HR) Zone District of the Town’s Unified Development Code (UDC). More specifically, the PD calls out multi-family dwellings and carriage units over garages as Uses Permitted by Right. The PD also increases the gross density of Planning Area 2 to 22 Dwelling Units per acre from the HR district's maximum of 16 Dwelling Units per acre. This allows for a maximum of 308 units. In addition, the maximum number of 24 units per building in the UDC is increased to a maximum of 28 units per building for buildings three-stories or less in height and 44 units per building for buildings four-stories in height.

The ordinance as approved adds contempt of court provisions to the municipal code, establishing procedures for the Court to follow related to contempt of court matters. Approved on First Reading, the effective date of this ordinance is September 1, 2017.
