Comments From The Public
This case is closed, see hearing results above.

I am very concerned about the environmental impact that RZ-18-002 will have on the ecology of Bear Creek which is a gem of natural beauty and a valuable asset to the people of Lakewood. The development will significantly impinge upon the wetlands and subterranean water supply as well as disrupt the flow of the creek and the life along it. I strongly oppose this -- and any development -- of the Bear Creek Greenbelt.

Further consideration for any development along South Wadsworth should include the traffic along this thoroughfare; already the road is choked to a near stand-still at commuter times. Without a redesign of Wadsworth, it is foolhardy to add more traffic.

Thank you for allowing me to comment.
