Spring Creek encompasses approximately 205 acres, and is located seven miles south of downtown Colorado Springs, near the intersection of the US 24 Bypass and Union Blvd. The neighborhoods in Spring Creek are designed using a Traditional Neighborhood Development (TND) plan.
TND is a comprehensive planning system that includes a variety of housing types and land uses in a defined area. The variety of uses permits educational facilities, civic buildings and commercial establishments to be located within walking distance of private homes. A TND is served by a network of paths, streets and lanes suitable for pedestrians as well as vehicles. This provides residents the option of walking, biking or driving to places within their neighborhood. Present and future modes of transit are also considered during the planning stages.
Spring Creek offers a variety of housing options. Currently offering single-family homes with detached garages, future plans include offering condominiums, townhomes and apartments. Residents have easy access to nearby retail, as well as a planned office/retail plaza. Other amenities include parks and recreational areas, and a brand new K-8th grade state of the art school.
Like any community, Spring Creek will grow over a period of years, with the neighborhood serving as the basic building block. Single-family lots are gathered around small parks and have easy access to close-by stores and civic space. The size of houses range from 1,400 to 3,900 square feet.
