The current laws related to growth in Lakewood are woefully inadequate regarding multi-unit construction. The result is that giant apartment complexes such as those built recently near Alameda Parkway and Union are counted as one single unit rather than the hundreds they should be. The result is that Lakewood is being turned into Denver, with all of the resulting congestion. Stricter growth ordinances have had positive effects in both Boulder and Golden, making those cities even more appealing without negative results. Lakewood would do well to follow their example. Thank you.

The citizens followed the rules and the law to submit a petition to control growth in the city. Efforts by people within the city to block to citizens' right to vote on this matter are disgraceful. Spending $100,000 of City of Lakewood money to combat this effort is ridiculous. This citizen initiate ordinance to limit growth is modeled after the one Golden passed over 15 years ago. From the view in Lakewood, Golden looks like it's thriving and this controlled growth initiative has not hurt the city or its ability to attract and retain citizens and businesses. I believe Lakewood would also benefit from this type of approach to growth.
