DEADWOOD - Developers of Apple Springs resort in Boulder Canyon can proceed with some additional building, as the Lawrence County planning and Zoning Commission approved a major planned unit development amendment and a change of zoning during public hearings at the Thursday meeting.
Partners David Simpson and Kevin Klaprodt presented the changes to the commission, which involved adding building sites to the resort and an addition to the golf course.
The change of zoning was needed to change about 43.22 acres from park forest to suburban residential for additional building sites.
There had been neighbors to the development that had some concerns about water quality and sewage, but Simpson apparently answered those questions at the Sept. 4 meeting, as no one appeared to testify against the changes requested.
One of the things that brought about the change was a land swap between Apple Springs and the Boulder Canyon Country Club. The agreement for the land swap had been signed so the Planning and Zoning Commission acknowledged that. The land swap will allow for more homes and the back nine of the golf course.
These items had been tabled since the Sept. 4 meeting as the developers finished working on the plan for the commission.
Both were approved by the commission after public hearings on the matter.
