BLACK FOREST HISTORY
In the forest itself, modern subdivision had a fitful start in the 1920’s when Dreamland and Brentwood Country Clubs were organized. Although these ventures were not particularly successful, they did represent the beginning of what would become a significant summer home market in the planning area. As houses for sale in Black Forest began to rise, a boom in year-round subdivisions took place in the late 1950’s and early 1960’s as Black Forest houses for sale continued to grow. As for the homes for sale in Black Forest Co, most of the planning area was zoned for five-acre minimum lot sizes in 1965.
Primarily in response to plans for a major transportation corridor through the eastern portion of the planning area, residents and County staff-initiated work on a comprehensive land use plan in the early 1970’s. The result of this effort was adoption of the Black Forest Preservation Plan in 1974. While this plan recommended rural-residential uses for most of the planning area, it also delineated several large areas for mixed urban uses. The largest of these was in the southeast where the new “city” of Latigo would later be proposed.While Latigo has not materialized as envisioned, the Colorado Springs metropolitan area itself has expanded rapidly in the direction of the planning area. During the same period numerous large lot residential subdivisions have been platted and developed in the planning area, allowing it to retain much of its rural character and a good bit of its historic legacy. Homes for sale in Black Forest Co are desired by many local Colorado Springs residents.
