Home Depot must submit a second building proposal by Oct. 8

SILVERTHORNE – Though a Home Depot plan received initial approval from the Town of Silverthorne on April 8, representatives of the big- box retailer have yet to submit a second version of the proposal.

“According to code, that’s valid for a period of six months. By Oct. 8, they will have to submit for preliminary plan or ask for an extension,” said community development director Mark Leidal. “If they were to give us a letter requesting an extension, it would have to be for good cause.”

Home Depot is aware of the due date, Leidal added. The national home-improvement retailer proposes to build a 100,000 square-foot store south of Interstate 70, near the outlet stores close to the base of the Dillon Dam. In order for a Home Depot to come to town, three rounds of approvals would have to occur.

And when Silverthorne OKed the first draft of a plan for a new Home Depot in April, council members said they still had questions about which road improvements would be required for the store’s opening day of business, and if the town would consider cost-sharing for road construction.
