A plan of the proposed 60-unit Alpine Basin development at 3rd Street and Airport Road, Red Lodge.

The Red Lodge Planning Board will conduct a public hearing at City Hall, Nov. 24 at 5:30 p.m., on a proposed 60-unit development at 3rd Street and Airport Road, the site of the gravel pit at the top of Brewery Hill. The development, called Alpine Basin, will include a clubhouse and a swimming pool. The homes will be built for multiple single families.Zorin Development from Moorhead, Minnesota, is planning the development. The project will consist of 60 two-story framed residential structures with a crawl space or concrete slab.  Eighteen will be two-bedroom units and 42 three-bedroom units.  It is expected to be completed by 2026. A traffic impact study conducted by Sanderson Stewart, Billings, concluded that the development will “generate a minimal amount of new traffic demands for area streets and intersections” with “approximately 213 new vehicle trips” being generated daily.  A crash history analysis showed that no crashes were reported at the study intersection in the last five years. A stop sign has also been recommended at the Alpine Basin access road. A copy of the applications and related materials for the Conditional Use and Design Review request are available electronically by request or available at City Hall. Questions regarding the proposal or how to view the meeting online may be directed to the Planning Office at (406) 446-1606 Ext. 117 or Public comment is encouraged.
