Former state legislator joins Sterling Ranch staff

Susan Beckman will present development plans

The Sterling Ranch Development Company has added Susan Beckman to its team as the new director of entitlement, according to a press release.

Entitlements are the legal processes in which developers obtain, from a governing board — in this case the Douglas County Board of County Commissioners — approval for their development plans.

“In my role as the Sterling Ranch entitlement director, I ensure the entitlement process for Sterling Ranch is timely, legal and transparent,” Beckman said. “I make presentations to the Douglas County Board of County Commissioners, Douglas County Planning Commission, Colorado state regulatory agencies and community organizations. And I coordinate the final recording of all relevant entitlement documents.”

Beckman was a Republican state representative from Littleton until the start of the 2020 legislative session, when she abruptly resigned to take a job in the last year of the Trump administration as a Department of Health and Human Services regional director. She previously served as an Arapahoe County commissioner and Littleton city councilmember.

Beckman will be responsible for coordinating, negotiating and presenting all entitlement activities and strategies for Sterling Ranch. Entitlements also include the legal recording of zoning amendments, neighborhood plans, preliminary plans, plats and related documents.

Sterling Ranch Development Company is the developer of Sterling Ranch, a master-planned community in northwest Douglas County.

“I'm very pleased to be joining the Sterling Ranch Development team, as they continue to provide a beautifully designed master planned community which emphasizes safety and sustainability for all their residents,” Beckman said, according to the release. “There is such a demand for high quality housing today and that makes it an exciting time to join the premier master planned community in Colorado.”

Sterling Ranch had 393 home sales in 2020, according to the news release.
