The Sun Valley City Council approved on Dec. 2 a set of revisions to plans to subdivide and build 43 townhouse units on the “Sunshine Parcel,” an approximately 4.6-acre site in Elkhorn Village.
Council members voted 2-1 to allow Texas-based Timberline Real Estate Partners to revise a preliminary plat approved by the council in January. The developer had planned to build 49 units in three phases on the site, in a development called Sunshine Townhomes.
The revisions reduce the unit count in Phase 1 from 25 to 19, thereby reducing the total unit count in the development from 49 to 43. Changes also reduce the number of unassigned guest parking spaces and increase connectivity to the adjacent city bike path.

From the viewpoint of a drone, it is inconceivable to me that the S.V. City Council ever considered and gave its permission to place 43 units on a 4.6 acre lot in Elkhorn Village. That's more than 10 units per acre. A parking issue? Is anyone surprised? I live in an Elkhorn condo that has 38 units on 19 acres, almost 5 x Sunshine Village, as approved and we feel "crowded," particularly in winter. I don't think there's even going to be room for trees @ Sunshine. Or, even sunshine.
