Brighton Reserve at Welch's Hilltop Acres

Brighton, Colorado


Project Description

Brighton Reserve is an exclusive project in the city of Brighton. Very few custom home lots inside a gated community such as this are available in Brighton. As such, the City of Brighton has upheld high standards for this project as it will be an example to follow for projects to come. Western Engineering Consultants (WEC) was hired for its expertise of completing development planning and engineering in the City of Brighton. This parcel of land was originally a 5.5 acre single family dwelling within Adams County that was annexed, zoned, and then subdivided into 9 estate sized lots. WEC took this property through the Brighton Development Review Committee, annexation and rezoning, preliminary and final platting and engineering applications for the project. In addition, WEC also provided landscape and architectural standards for this low density development. Brighton Reserve faced several engineering and planning challenges. There is only one access on the north side of the property onto Southern Street. As Southern Street was not complete prior to the project, WEC designed the portion of the city collector along the northern boundary of the project. Water and sanitary sewer mains had to be connected to the existing subdivision north through an existing lot. Extensive concessions were made to work with neighboring county residents.
