The Evergreen Gateway will provide a beautiful entryway for visitors and residents alike, according to the developer of a proposal to put commercial development on Evergreen Parkway across from Walmart.

Some of the 120 residents attending the virtual community meeting on May 19 had many questions as they tried to understand the impact of the proposal for a four-story, 100-room boutique hotel, convenience store/gas station and three to four retail/restaurant buildings.
Jack Buchanan of Evergreen, who is spearheading the effort, wants to rezone the properties from agricultural and commercial to planned development, combining the RTD Park-n-Ride, Foothills Fire, Alpine Rescue and former Observatory Café properties.
