Judge Pratt Asks City and County for Additional Briefs on Urban Renewal Dispute

ORDER FOR ADDITIONAL BRIEFING ON THE URBAN RENEWAL DISPUTE OVER THE INCLUSION OF AGRICULTURAL LAND IN THE SANTA FE URBAN RENEWAL AREA

THIS MATTER having come before the Court for trial, and the Court having reviewed the evidence, testimony and argument of counsel, requests further briefing from the parties on the following issue.

To satisfy the area calculation, “not less than one-half of the urban renewal area as a whole consists of parcels of land containing urban-level development.” C.R.S. § 31- 25-107(1)(c)(II)(B). This calculation requires the Court to understand, and if necessary resolve any dispute over, what constitutes the “urban renewal area as a whole.” For instance: does the urban renewal area as a whole include land consisting of dedicated public rights-of-way? What is the land area of the dedicated ROW within the Plan Area?

Plaintiff may file a brief on this issue within 14 days, with Response Brief filed by the Defendant within seven days thereafter, and a Reply Brief within seven days after the Response Brief is filed. (Times New Roman font, 12 pt. min. with no more than 10 pages.)
