This is the location where the developer proposes to build 240 out of 420 High-density, Multi-family Apartments up to 45 feet tall "Do you miss me yot??r Our cherished mountain & foothil views are about to be lost forever. 32-foo laarking Jot ight pole Navigador HO Yorizon Photo credit Denver Post Help us OPPOSE the developer's proposal to CHANGE ZONING from Office to High Density Multi-Family apartments at 2424 Garden of Gods Rd. Right-of-way Views looking Southwest from Flying W Ranch Road near 30h Street OBJECTIONS INCLUDE: 1. Additional traffic congestion at this critical traffic choke-point location during the next emergency/wildfire COMMUNITY UPDATE: This could happen to your community. We need your support. On January 21", the Colorado Springs Planning Commission's hearing resulted in an initial tie vote to reject/develop 420 high-density, 2 & 3 story. apartments on the Verizon property along 30 St. at the west end of Garden of the Gods Road. Their final decision was deferred to March 18* to allow the developer to provide missing details in their proposal. In their 2 vote, some Commissioners did not fully consider the resulting detrimental issues to our Community including safe emergency/wildfire evacuation, preservation of the hillside and mountain views, impacts to the bighorn sheep, and substandard parkland dedication for our northwest communities. As a result, it barely passed 4-3 in favor of the development. evacuation. 2. Inconsistent with goals of PlanCOS "Majestic Landscapes" and the requirements of the City's Hillside Overlay Ordinance & Hillside Design Manual-fails to prevent development encroachment nor protect existing views of mountains and foothills at this gateway location to Garden of the Gods with 2 & 3-story multi-family apartments up to 45 ft tall. 3. More overcrowding of our parks and trails with 1,000+ new residents-adds nearly 1/3 of entire Mountain Shadows population at this single location; and fails to provide required Community park acreage in accordance with the City's Park Land Dedication Ordinance. 4. Impact on our local Bighorn sheep herd by disrupting their habitat, migration area and lambing (birthing) area just 1400 feet from this property. The single Commissioner's swing vote that resulted in the 4-3 split decision, indicated that the west-side risk of wildfire evacuation "is rcally asystemic issue that is bigger than any single project"- effectively deferring the final decision to City Council. Our new City Council members get sworn in on April 20- many of them promised to listen to the voters and all but one expressed Public Safety among their top priorities. Please join us in congratulating Dave Donelson District 1, Randy Helms District 2. Richard Skorman District 3, Yolanda Avila District 4. Nancy Henjum District 5. & Mike O'Malley District 6. They and the 3 at-large members of Council (Bill Murray. Tom Stand and Wayne Williams) will now decide the fate of this 2424 Garden of the Gods development proposal. The hearing is planned for mid to late May. One Commissioner who voted to reject this proposal stated that the City should protect majestic views and that this project "is not really Infill: it's more encroachment" at this gateway location to the Garden of the Gods. Another Commissioner supported the community's right to object to any detrimental rezoning of their neighborhood. A third Commissioner voiced grave health and safety concerns over adding another 1.000- residents at this existing traffic choke-point during our next wildfire evacuation - noting in fune 2012, we were lucky that the Waldo Canyon emergency evacuation began in daylight instead of 2 AM in the morning, 2 died, 346 homes destroyed.
