It's been suggested to me that Brighton is a upcoming future neighborhood for the local area.. (10-20 years it will be better?) it's also been suggested that areas near Castle Rock are up and coming such as Sedalia

One of the problems I seem to be facing with a build is insane tap and sewer fee's..

Any suggestions? Seeking generally middle to northern area.. thorton, northglenn etc.

Are you talking about buying a lot and then building on it?

Are you a builder?

Most of metro Denver is subdivision-ized, it's harder and harder to find land that can be zoned for residential and not be in an already planned community.

You will find those tap fees are becoming the norm, as many cities in Colorado are facing water problems. Unfortunately unless you can buy land with some kind of water rights associated with it, you will be stuck paying $25,000+ anywhere in the northern front range area.

This is my area hehe.

There are quite a few sub-divisions that have very large lots, and are quite good.

White Hawk Ranch (cannot find you a link to the comunity)
the lots look to be 1-2 acre lots. I do belive that there are a few lots left

Somerset Meadows
Somerset Meadows - Somerset Meadows, Park Meadows & Somerset Estates
it has been a while since i have done a home in here, i do belive the lots are larger than average

Spruce Meadows
Custom Home Community - Spruce Meadows - Broomfield, CO
these are 2 acre lots with some being equestrian (horse) useable. I just finished a few homes out here (design) It is a great subdivision that is pretty spread apart.

Huntington Trails
Home
these lots are not overly large, you are in a closer nit comunity, but they have some great lots in the custom areas

If i remember right, you will need a water tap in Spruce Meadows, and they use septic systems on the lots.

Thanks for the lots/advice.. but I'm looking for a very affordable lot in the price range of $50k w/ water/sewer taps or well/septic

Generally, pushing for a northern I-25 area above commerce city (my current job has me travel all over the city and thus.. being somewhat in the middle is advantageous to travel.. I realize of course however that my budget for lots may put me 20 miles up I-25 of course)
