Canyon River is an 11-phase 270 lot residential subdivision featuring an 18-hole championship golf course nestled on the Clark Fork River just outside Missoula. Territorial Landworks Inc. has been working with Canyon River Properties, LLC since 2007 and is responsible for designing the infrastructure for Phases 3-7 in an efficient and cost-effective manner. Another firm completed phases 1 and 2. TLI has used a wide scope of services on this project including designing over 2 million dollars of infrastructure, boundary line relocations, rezoning, gaining planning and engineering approvals, phasing amendments, contract administration, sewer/water systems along with final plat packets for Phases 6-7.
When TLI was first brought on to the project after Phase 2 was complete, the goal was to re-evaluate the property and value of the approvals and approach the project with a long-term vision in mind. By understanding this vision of the client TLI was able to add value to the project and ensure the proper steps were being done in phases 3-5 to lay the groundwork for phases 6-7.
The property had already been annexed and zoned resulting in 7 lost lots. TLI spent the time to do the correct background work to recoup all of the lots that had been lost and handled rezoning and boundary line relocations. TLI is responsible for helping Canyon River Properties manage overall land use by making sure approvals are intact by handling all phasing amendments and phasing extensions.
