Letter to the editor: Numerous reasons

Posted
 
After reading the article by Bob Wooley, “Development stalls…” I wanted a chance to state the reason why I and 2,500 residents signed the petition against the development. 
This lot was originally zoned for 3 residences. Wheat Ridge City Council approved a zoning change that would allow 10 residences to be built on this lot — more than 3 times the original zoning allowance. The article also, did not mention that the size of the lot, is 1.28 acres. One has to wonder how a developer is going to squeeze 10 residences and an alley on a 1.28 acre lot. I have been to the web site and there was no square ft. listed for each dwelling, distance between dwellings, width of the alley and how far back the dwellings would be from the sidewalk.
The website did not mention parking or show parking. Parking should be kept in the development not in the adjacent neighborhood. The website did not include how the traffic from the development will be kept from affecting the traffic flow negatively in the area of 38thand Kipling. The traffic on 38th and Johnson already backs up in that area during rush hour.  It is my personal feelings that City Council should not be making decisions that are biased for developers. The voters of Wheat Ridge should be allowed to say what they want their city to look like, not developers who will be profiting. 
Diane Potter,
Wheat Ridge
