Housing plan heads back to P&Z

Express Staff Writer

Representatives of the Sweetwater project—a 421-unit planned unit development proposed for 22 acres in the Woodside area on the south end of Hailey—will present several applications to the Hailey Planning and Zoning Commission on Monday.

The public meeting is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. in the upstairs meeting room of Hailey City Hall.

The proposed development is a joint venture between several Wood River Valley developers and the 474 Club LLC of Memphis, Tenn. The project is proposed for a large patch of open ground located between state Highway 75 on the west, Woodside Boulevard to the east, Balmoral Apartments and South Hailey Townhomes to the north and several lots north of Winterhaven Drive to the south. The development would straddle both sides of Countryside Boulevard.

At a previous P&Z meeting, developers touted the project's pedestrian-friendly features as well as affordable, entry-level-priced homes.

As proposed, the project would be composed primarily of townhouse and condominium housing units, but would also include live-and-work housing units where homeowners could operate small businesses in downstairs spaces below their upstairs living quarters. Under the proposal, the majority of the traffic resulting from the project would be funneled to Highway 75 by way of Countryside Boulevard.

The proposed PUD needs approval of the P&Z and the City Council to proceed.
