This case is closed, see hearing results above.

Should this property be zoned Small Lot Residential (R-1-6), what is the process to remove the park designation and allow residential development to commence on the property?

I have heard that the City of Lakewood is planning to turn over 270 acres of land in Hayden Green Mountain Park for development. Is this true? I definitely hope not. That is pristine open space of which Lakewood is proud. We should keep it that way.
