Hayden project moves forward

What: Hayden Planning CommissionWhen: 7 p.m. ThursdayWhere: Hayden Town Hall

— Plans for a mixed-use development in Hayden likely will be finalized and approved during the Hayden Planning Commission meeting Thursday.

The commission will consider a site plan and final plat for Creek View Subdivision. This is one of the last steps before the development is built.

The Creek View Town Homes and Plaza development calls for as many as 29 residential units, seven commercial units and the re-use of an existing building that housed a restaurant.

The development would be on a 3.21-acre parcel south of U.S. Highway 40, east of Dry Creek and west of an alley between Fifth and Sixth Streets.

A barn, shed and house would be torn down to build the development.

Developer Stefanus Nijsten said the restaurant would be reopened.

The project has been met with near unanimous support from town officials throughout the process.

Trustee Ken Gibbon has been the only official to vote against the development.

He said the project was too dense.

Hayden planner Tim Katers stated in a memo to planning commissioners that the site plan meets the requirements of the town code.

Town staff is recommending the final subdivision plat be approved with no conditions.

The planning commission also is expected to discuss revisions to Hayden’s Land Use Code.

“As staff continues to work with the new Land Use Code, we find areas where a change would improve the code or where a topic may not have been adequately covered,” Katers said.
