Low Income Housing in the Heart of Downtown Littleton – Right or Wrong?

Below is a report from Deanna Cook who is leading a group of citizens opposed to the granting of $12,000,000 of tax credits to Summit to build a low income housing project in downtown Littleton.  Colorado Housing Finance Authority (CHFA) attended the city council study session to explain their process for awarding tax credits to developers to build low-income housing.  During the course of the meeting Doug Clark, who had looked into the rezoning history of the property made a startling revelation…….was the property rezoned illegally?  Sure looks like it.  Oh, the legacy of Michael Penny………..  Please read.
From Deanna Cook – Thank all of you who attended last night’s City Council Study Session with CHFA.  For those of you who didn’t make it, I strongly encourage you to view the one-hour video on the City’s website.  It is highly informational – and highly concerning.  (http://littleton.ompnetwork.org/shows/city-council-study-session-01242017?iframe_mode=true

Community Conversation Thursday, October 13, 2016

Community Conversation this Thursday night – October 13 at the Connections Room, 6520 S Broadway.  Doors open at 6:45 and meeting is 7:00- 8:30 pm.

Many times the community only sees the tip of the iceberg with new development projects in Littleton.  What has the developer done to get his project in front of the Planning Commission and the City Council?  What role does staff play in the process?  Do the citizens of Littleton play a part in the process?
Jocelyn Mills, Littleton’s Director of Community Development, will be the guest speaker to talk about the zoning process from a developer’s point of view.  What does a developer have to do to get a building permit?  What is a “use by right” and how is the process different from a rezoning requirement?
