As a resident of Lakewood for 23 years, I have witnessed increased building of single family homes, apartments and condos to the extent that the increased traffic on our roads has brought unmitigated congestion. I fervently request the density of the Union corridor between Alameda and 6th Avenue be curtailed as much as possible.
For 10 years I worked in office spaces on Union while living in Lakewood. My commute time to work more than doubled from 5 minutes to 12 minutes over that time period.
Whenever we have a heavy snow storm or a fire on Green Mountain, the traffic to either get home or get away from home on the east side of Green Mountain west of Union and Alameda may come to a standstill. There is just not enough access to get off or on the mountain. Any increased density in the Union corridor will only exacerbate this situation.

As a resident of Lakewood for 18 years, I've seen the Union Blvd corridor grow exponentially with primarily residential building rather than commercial building that would generate more revenue for Lakewood and enable more residents to commute locally rather than to Denver, Boulder and Englewood. This residential growth has created exponentially more traffic as well as accidents. In addition, new housing has taken away views from certain neighborhoods, thus devaluing the homes in those areas. And new housing has not taken the form of condos, which would potentially give residents the opportunity for more access to reasonably priced (theoretically) home ownership.

I strongly urge the planning commission to limit the residential/apartment growth in the Union Blvd corridor to mitigate the negative effects of this type of housing. In addition, I encourage the planning commission to actively court businesses into the corridor to increase job opportunities in the area.
