As all commercial projects and improvements in Highlands Ranch must be reviewed, the HRCA Commercial Review Committee is the authority for smaller commercial projects while the HRCA Development Review Committee is the review authority for commercial construction projects.
In most instances, commercial projects will need to be reviewed by the HRCA Development Review Committee before Douglas County will issue permits, according to the HRCA website.
The Board of Directors designates the committee to review site plans, preliminary plans and amendments to the Highlands Ranch Development Guide.
The committee was shown a site improvement plan with a few minor revisions from the original approved site plan for phase three of construction on Arma Dei Academy, a classical Christian school on Wildcat Reserve Parkway.
The presentation for phase three of construction focused on the building materials mimicking the current structure as an upper level is added. With the original design being a single level, the building elevation will be brought up to the height of the gymnasium, allowing for additional classrooms and restrooms.
In the final phase of construction, the site plan looks to include landscaping concerns. Originally there was some parking along the west side of the building. The revision plans to take some of the spaces out to provide more landscaping to the side of the building and move those spaces to the front of the building, still maintaining the parking requirements.
After the presentation, the committee members provided feedback to the architects and asked questions based on a few of their concerns.
Feedback and concerns centered around the overall consistency of the buildings’ design such as aligning the white lines on the exterior of the building and continuing the use of glass.
The meeting ended with an approved motion to table the discussion until further notice.
