The Hailey Planning and Zoning Commission reviewed on Tuesday, Jan. 21, a proposed 147-unit housing plan on 54.38 acres of the “Dumke property” in east Hailey.

Annexed into the city many years ago, the property lies south of Old Cutters subdivision and north of Quigley Road. About 50 people turned out at City Hall to provide public comment on the project.

Sunbeam Subdivision by Marathon Partners, represented by Samantha Stahlnecker of Galena Engineering, presented a planned-unit-development application and concurrent preliminary plat application for the two-phase development, which would include 44 “cottage” single-family residences and 103 additional single-family residences on a total of 108 existing lots.

Community Development Director Lisa Horowitz said the development team is proposing cottage lots in the range of 4,000 to 5,000 square feet, but that they have not been drawn yet. The team is also proposing some single-family lots far in excess of 8,000 square feet, open space, walking paths and a connection with Curtis Park in Hailey.

Horowitz said current zoning would allow for an overall density of 177 lots at a minimum of 8,000 square feet on the property,

“The developer is not asking for additional density,” Horowitz said.

Public comment centered around the proposed configuration of smaller lots on the periphery of the development, the potential need for an additional road and whether sidewalks on both sides of roads should be required.
