Gold Hill grading on hold for city study
Grading in preparation for the planned Gold Hill Mesa subdivision has been delayed to let Colorado Springs Utilities confirm that
the site does not have underground water pockets that could cause problems for utility lines.
Developer Bob Willard said his studies indicate there are no such pockets - theoretically stemming from the years of gold-milling at the site - but he understands the city's need to use sophisticated equipment to make certain.
Grading prior to Planning Commission consideration had been tentatively scheduled for late August/ early September. Willard made no new grading prediction, but told the Westside Pioneer he now expects the project to go before the commission sometime in October. The 210-acre site is southeast of Highway 24 and 21st Street.
