Appeals court upholds ruling in favor of Sterling Ranch

KUSA – The Colorado Court of Appeals issued a unanimous decision Thursday upholding the Douglas County Board of County Commissioners’ approval of Sterling Ranch, a master-planned community in northwest Douglas County.

The decision denies an appeal to the 2013 Douglas County approval brought by a group of residents opposed to the project.

Sterling Ranch is planned to bring 31,000 people in more than 12,000 homes to a 3,400-acre parcel south of C-470 and west of Santa Fe Drive. The project has a 20-year build-out.

The appeal was brought after a challenge to Sterling Ranch was denied by Eighteenth Judicial District Judge Richard Caschette in February 2014.
