Homes, commercial space proposed for Erie’s Dearmin property

ERIE — A developer proposes to build 946 homes and 35,000 square feet of commercial space on the Dearmin property in Erie, a mostly vacant 266-acre parcel south of Erie Parkway and east of Weld County Road 5.

Erie Land Co. LLC has submitted preliminary plans for the development, which are set to be reviewed by Erie’s Board of Trustees this week.

Erie Land Co. is registered to a Tennessee address associated with Southern Land Co., a major developer whose local projects include Reve Boulder. Erie planning documents show Southern Land community development vice president Heidi Majerik as a representative of the applicant for the Dearmin project.

The residential portion of the development would include a variety of housing types from townhomes to duplexes to single-family homes, planning documents show.

The community could be home to roughly 2,700 new residents at buildout.

The plan “emphasizes a walkable village at the northeast corner with a direct connection through the open space to the neighborhood park at the promontory along the east property line,” according to documents submitted to the town. “The vehicular circulation provides direct access through the community while leading to or terminating at the neighborhood park. Every resident is within a five-minute walk to the neighborhood park, a pocket park and various connections to the pedestrian trail network.”

Commercial space uses could include retail, restaurants, offices and medical services.

“The project is likely to be constructed in multiple phases,” planning documents show. “The first phases will be centered around the northernmost proposed community amenity and subsequent phases will be built to the south of that area.”
