A project that will see the construction of a new ten-house subdivision in Durango, Colorado has won the approval of a city planning commission that had previously voted the proposal down.
What is being called Jameson Court will see the construction of a pocket park in an already-existing residential neighborhood on the northwest side of Durango.
The project will go up at the site of the former Puckett Electric at 73 Jameson Drive and will require the demolition of the 3,400 square-foot building that housed that business.
According to city documents, ten residential structures, measuring roughly 1,600 square feet and featuring three bedrooms and two bathrooms, will make up Jameson Court.
The houses will be designed with a unifying architecture and color scheme and will face a common courtyard some 65 feet in width.
Due to concerns regarding parking on the dead end Jameson Drive, members of the Durango Planning Commission in March had voted the project down.
But that same commission has now approved the project in the wake of an updated plan requiring Jameson Court residents to park in their garages, thus freeing up street space.
The project now goes to the Durango City Council for a final review and hoped-for vote of approval.
