Project: Cattle Creek Crossing



Cattle Creek

Location: Rocky Mountains, Colorado

Forty-five minutes from world-famous Aspen, Colorado, Sherwood Design Engineers helped to develop a SmartCode master plan for a new community abutting the Roaring Fork River. The Cattle Creek project comprises 1000 units around an urban core with a school and mixed-density neighborhoods which include over thirty percent affordable housing. Sherwood developed appropriate strategies for the different density transects of the community, including adopting traffic-calming and pedestrian-oriented streetscapes. The plans also transformed an old rail corridor on the site into a wildlife corridor for local elk and other species. By enhancing this natural pathway with landscaping and stormwater features, we were able to incorporate it into the development as a working feature of this pristine landscape.
