SPEARFISH — The Spearfish City Council approved the final plan for the first phase of development at Spearfish Canyon Village.

The phase includes the construction of a three-story, 14,900-square-foot, mixed-use building on a portion of the former driving range off the southwest corner of East Colorado Boulevard and Spearfish Canyon Road. The overall village area was rezoned from agriculture to development review district in March, when a concept plan was approved.

The building would front Spearfish Canyon Road, with an overall height of 45 feet at its highest point on the roof ridge. The building setback from the highway right-of-way line would be 15 feet, and because the exact mix of future tenants is unknown, the owners must build additional parking when the required parking surpasses the 46 stalls shown on the site plan, a staff report states. This requirement would be verified with each tenant occupancy permit.

“The building reflects a contemporary concept with exterior finishes that reflect the forms and texture of mountainous and canyon environments,” the report states.

During this phase of development, one access, one building, and one parking lot would be built. As additional portions of the development are designed, those plans will come through the planning commission and city council for final approval.
