Letter: There is still time to have your opinion heard

On Dec. 14, the Jeffco Planning Commission approved the rezoning of the 14-acre property just east of King Soopers on South Golden Road in Pleasant View to accommodate a mega-project of 350+ luxury rental apartments and townhomes. The proposal includes a property line of 800 feet, four stories tall and only a 10-foot setback. Tim Rogers, Chairman of the Planning Commission, pointed out at the hearing that this will create a wall or tunnel effect along Golden Road. As a two-lane street with a turn lane in the center, South Golden Road was never designed to carry that amount of traffic.

This traffic will not only impact the residents of Pleasant View, but when traffic is heavy, the neighborhoods to the north of Golden Road will simply use Quaker Street to Golden Hills Road through the Golden neighborhoods of Southridge and Rimrock.

The final rezoning will be voted on by the county commissioners on Jan. 24. I encourage anyone opposed to the magnitude of this development to contact the commissioners prior to the hearing. This area is going to be developed — we ask that it be done responsibly.

Please let your voice be heard by contacting our county commissioners.
