COLORADO SPRINGS – The El Paso County Board of Commissioners overwhelmingly approved plans for an expansion of the Flying Horse development in Colorado Springs.
This is in the northern part of El Paso County, as it will now continue to grow. The plans include 283 residential lots, a golf course and open space.
Residents living in Black Forest voiced their concerns about water, roads, and safety. But say in the end, they will deal with the decision made and move forward.
”They’ve put some larger lots along the boundaries which transitions better to lots across the road, and
so we think they’ve done good things, so we’re not like we’re against the whole thing,” said Terry Stokka of the Black Forest Preservation Plan.
The more than 1,400 acres is east of Highway 83, south of Hodgen Road and bordered by Black Forest Road to the east.
Construction is said to begin in the coming months and the golf course is expected to open in 2019.
