Community Conversation – Dec. 1, 21016

Community Conversation has been scheduled for Dec. 1st, 7:00pm at the Connections Room at 6520 S Broadway (just a couple doors south of Solid Grounds in the South Fellowship Church Center). Doors will be unlocked at 6:45 and meeting will end at 8:30. The subject for the evening will be Columbine Square.

If you are wondering:

-what is the connection between Columbine Square and the Columbine Square Urban Renewal       (UR) Plan,
-how did Columbine Square get in the condition it is in today,
-how our tax dollars can be diverted to subsidize the redevelopment of Columbine Square,
-where do those tax dollars come from,
-what is B-2 zoning and what does it have to do with Columbine Square redevelopment,
-what happens if the Columbine Square UR Plan is repealed,
-what happens if the UR Authority (LIFT) is abolished,
-do citizens have any voice in the redevelopment of Columbine Square,
-do the Englewood citizens have a voice,
-what happens on Dec. 6th regarding the future of Columbine Square?

We will attempt to answer all these questions and more. Come prepared with your questions.

We are on the final leg of our Food Drive for the 244th Heavy Artillery Army Reserve Families. Please show your support for the troops and bring something for them in the way of non-perishable food items. They are in need and cannot ask for help. They are so grateful for anything we provide from food items to disposable diapers to shampoo. What a small price to pay for what they do for us.

City Council Meeting on UR Plans and LIFT – 10.04.2016

Littleton City Council       4 October 2016      Citizen Minutes

Before the meeting could really get underway Debbie Brinkman moved to postpone all the urban renewal (UR) items on the agenda to December 6, 2016. (Brinkman has been making motions to postpone this decision since last March.) She said that a project was forthcoming from the Cheng group for the old Columbine Square Shopping Center. (Cheng has allowed his property to fall in disrepair after evicting all his tenants two years ago. He has gone before the Planning Commission twice with a project but withdrew his application the day of the meeting in both instances. Have to wonder just how it is that she knows that a project is forthcoming when LIFT doesn’t know.) Continue reading

3D Animation of the Grove – You have got to see this! What a Crime!

I don’t know who to give credit to but this is a You Tube video where someone took the gravesite for the old Sheriff’s Building and created a 3-D animation of what the Grove development will look like.  Truly a huge mistake.

This 3D animation gives a birds-eye view of just how big the visual impact this wrongfully approved project will make on Littleton.  (Posted from the Advocates for Littleton’s website.  They are fighting the zoning and of course it takes money.  Please read their update after you watch the video…..get ready!!!

This happened under Phil Cernanec’s watch – citizens addressed the council several times about the code violations only to be ignored. Continue reading

City Council Meeting 8.09.2016 Study Session on UR and Domestic Violence in Littleton

City Council Study Session          9 August 2016                 Citizen Minutes

This discussion of urban renewal was a lot of rehashing of the same topics. I am not going to try to capture every conversation but only what was new or at least not the same hum drum.    Continue reading

City Council Meeting – 12 July 2016 – Interview Interim City Manager Mark Relph

At the end of this meeting the council “interviewed” Mark Relph, Public Works director, for the interim city manager position.  If you don’t have time to read the entire set of minutes – read the interview.  He is a very different leader than Michael Penny. Continue reading

City Council Regular Meeting July 5, 2016 – Reconsideration of the Firing of Michael Penny

City Council Regular Meeting                                Citizen Minutes – July 5th, 2016

This set of minutes is very long – 26 pages.  But there was significant discussion among the council members around the firing of Michael Penny.  A very good meeting and it is worth the read.  It is not as timely as I like to get the minutes out but it was important to get it right – at least the content portion!  I am behind but will try to catch up with the other outstanding minutes.
