A “Blight” designation for 14th and Harlan/Gray:

I understand this project can be built currently using regular allocations. Application should be denied.

I am opposed to a blight designation for 14th &Harlan/Gray. This project can be built currently using regular allocations. Hopefully this won’t be a repeat of what happened in August with the 1347 Lamar property. I encourage Council to stop granting exemptions from SGI/200 when it is unnecessary.

I attended a past Lakewood City Council meeting and heard the request for blight designation. I saw the slides presented which show the lot and adjoining properties.
I OPPOSE blight designation. This property is near commercially viable traffic corridors. A blight designation would be misleading
because the value is in the land. Location and proximity to car, foot, and internet traffic make a business location viable. The value doesn't disappear because of a rough driveway and lack of cosmetic landscaping. It appears to me the Bight designation request is an attempt to circumvent existing growth limitations - by using alternative terminology. Oppose Blight designation for 14th & Harlan/Gray.

Blight designation application - a developer is seeking a “blight” exemption from SGI/200/14.27 for 14th & Harlan/Gray. This project can already be built currently using regular allocations so it does not need a blight exemption. Giving it a blight exemption would allow the establishment to free up more allocations for use elsewhere in the City. Obviously, this is not in accordance with SGI and is a clear maneuver to bypass SGI.
