Standing atop the rolling hills of Norris Ranch, it’s easy to picture a beautiful life here. The snow-capped top of Pikes Peak stands to the Northwest. The Spanish Peaks and the Sangre de Cristo range mark the southwestern horizon. The new Upper Williams Reservoir will be right next door, Jimmy Camp Creek will wind through the community, and along the creek, mature Ponderosa Pine, Gamble Oak and Douglas Fir bring vibrance to the landscape. It’s the kind of location that’s good for the soul.
Beyond its natural beauty, Norris Ranch is precisely located where Colorado Springs growth is heading. Already just 10 minutes from I-25 at Mesa Springs Parkway, it should soon be even more convenient to I-25 via the anticipated extension of Mesa Creek Parkway. Additionally, the southward extension of Powers Boulevard — State Highway 21 — is planned to intersect with the west side of Norris Ranch on its way to connect with I-25 . That places this new community just 12 minutes to Colorado Springs Airport, 15 minutes from Peterson Air Force Base, and 19 minutes to downtown Colorado Springs.
Over the coming 20 years, La Plata Communities expects to see development of 7,500 residential units and 750 acres of commercial properties at Norris Ranch. And you can fully expect to see the acclaimed amenities La Plata has become famous for with other planned communities like Briargate, Cordera and The Farm. Trails, parks, pools and community gathering places, and more will welcome families and bring neighbors together.
Entitlements for the first 400 acres of Norris Ranch land are expected to be completed in 2020. Early development and land sales should commence in 2020-2021. If you’d like to learn more about Norris Ranch, please feel free to contact:
