Community of small houses planned for western El Paso County; He is believed to be the first along the Colorado Front Range
EL PASO COUNTY, Colorado (KRDO) – A Littleton-based business has announced plans to establish a small home community near Colorado Springs.
The company, Life-size: small communities, plans to open the community next fall. Joe Callantine, the president and founder, said the community will be the first of its kind along Colorado’s Front Range.
Callantine declined to reveal the location of the planned community, but an El Paso County spokesperson said a request for potential development had recently been made for western El Paso County, on 9620 Chipita Park Road, along US 24 at Ute Pass.
The spokesperson also said mini-house communities are permitted by county zoning requirements, especially in districts where RV fleets are permitted.
Callantine has not officially filed an application, the spokesperson added, and the project is in the early stages of planning.
According to the company’s website, the community will be called Bonsai village and include the following:
- +/- 30 minute ride to downtown Colorado Springs
- BYOH – Bring your own home
- Access to many natural trails on site
- Complete utility connections
- Community Center
- Expected monthly rental range: $ 650-850
- Opening scheduled for fall 2022
The company plans to use Bonsai village as a model for other mini-house communities across the country, and to make these communities more acceptable; many local zoning laws do not allow mini-houses and they have often been challenged by residents of traditional neighborhoods.
Investment communities are also available for the village.
