5 homes proposed southwest of 21st and Lower Gold Camp

       Bergamo Estates, a five-lot home development, is proposed south of Lower Gold Camp Road, on private land surrounded on three sides by Bear Creek Regional Park.
       Colorado Springs Planning is taking public comments on the request by Terra Nova Engineering, on behalf of owners Michael and Sharon Bonicelli through Sept. 24, according to planner Ryan Tefertiller.
       His administrative decision should be made by Oct. 12, Tefertiller said this week.
       The Pinello family has several residences in the same area now. The roughly 10-acre Bergamo Estates would be built east of that. The zone is residential estate with hillside and streamside overlay. The largest lot would 3.4 acres - on which the Bonicellis would build their house - and the smallest lot would be .85-acre.
       Key issues include the steep access down to the property from Lower Gold Camp Road and the strategy for moving wastewater from the homes into the city system, Tefertiller said.
       Comments can be phoned in to 385-5382 or at rtefertiller@springsgov.com.
