SILVERTHORNE ” The Silverthorne Town Council cleared the way Wednesday night for a small affordable housing development to be built on Anemone Trail Road.

The council unanimously approved the annexation of the 1-acre lot, which is located behind the Summit Plaza Shopping Center. The council also assigned R-15 zoning to the parcel, allowing up to 15 units of housing per acre.

The units will be developed by Tom Everist, the developer of South Maryland Creek Ranch per his December 2005 annexation agreement with the town. Everist is building 71 high-end homes on the north end of town on 355 acres of his 1072-acre ranch. The council approved the annexation of the 355 acres under an agreement that provided about $1 million worth of benefits to the town.

Per that agreement, the developer is required to build six to 11 units of affordable housing by December 2008.

The Town of Silverthorne purchased the Anemone Trail lot from the Town of Dillon in 2003.
