As the Sterling Ranch master-planned community wraps its first year of home sales and commercial development, since breaking ground in late 2017, the community is moving into its second year of growth amidst strong momentum. Its latest milestone, celebrated on site last week with community residents and partners, is the groundbreaking of the first recreation center to be developed in the 3,400 acre community.
“More than 400 homes are already under development and our first commercial building, the Sterling Center, is opening in phases this Winter,” said Harold Smethills, one of the founding visionaries behind the new Douglas County community. “Bringing this first recreation center to life is something we’ve been working hard on, and we couldn’t be more pleased to be starting this construction process today, as it is undeniably one of the amenities our residents are most excited about.”

Last weekend at the 3,400-acre master-planned Sterling Ranch development, in Douglas County’s Chatfield Valley, friends and neighbors celebrated a momentous occasion with the first dedication of one of its public parks.
The park, now formally known as Pat Gallagher Park, was dedicated in honor of one of the Roxborough community’s most influential and highly respected residents, who passed away in 2015.
In the late 2000s, as plans for Sterling Ranch became public, the development team led by Harold and Diane Smethills held dozens of conversations with adjacent neighbors, other stakeholders and governmental entities. It was during this process that Pat Gallagher and several others developed a very specific vision for the region that was supported and endorsed by the Roxborough community and would ultimately help open the gates to a productive, region-wide conversation about the valley’s needs and infrastructure issues. Centered in a ground-breaking document, the “Eleven Points of Vision” emerged based on Gallagher’s and other residents’ desire to guide the development of Sterling Ranch and all other future development in the valley to abide by a set of principles and ideals. These points of vision included such topics as rainwater management, a prioritization of open space and trail systems. Read More

Dr. Lake is a native of Michigan, Battle Creek to be specific. He has lived in Colorado since 2005, spending most of that time in the South Metro Area. He and his wife are parents to two boys, with a third child (a GIRL!) on the way. He is well-educated with a degree in Finance from Western Michigan University in addition to his Dental Medicine Degree from Midwestern University.
In this new dental office, inside the Sterling Center, Dr. Lake’s office will house five dental exam rooms in addition to an X-ray facility. His team will include a staff of at least four, with more room to grow alongside the growth of the Sterling Ranch community.
