    More multi-family structures simply increases traffic in an already congested area-one that was clearly not created for additional retail.
    Westbound traffic flow ends at BowMar. Bowmar has closed through traffic via gates, which has resulted in daily traffic backups on Southbound Lowell. Federal T's at Bowles, which requires traffic to travel to Santa Fe and creates hundreds of cars traveling south on the Platte-a two-lane road. We certainly cannot bulldoze these communities to make way for add'l. traffic created with more retail and multi-family housing. Create more community-friendly housing that incorporates courtyards and park benches and places for people to enjoy a respite from the traffic and congestion. Hudson Gardens in the middle of our city is a treasure, along with the Platte River and walking paths. Build on that focus-not on more retail and multi-family units. We made a small attempt to re-create the Centennial Downs history in the retail at Belleview and Santa Fe. We should continue that theme in the area West of Federal.

    The work to raze Columbine Square should be completed asap. Our neighborhood has suffered with this eyesore and the dangerous conditions it has caused for more than five years, with little action by the owners. The fire that ensued could have taken lives and we must move forward with this mission with haste, to avoid any such tragedy. We cannot add additional traffic, nor multi-habitational in this area, with the ongoing impedement of traffic. Again, the westbound Belleview and Southbound Federal streets END, are gated, or traverse westward towards the lakes. Adding multiple families or retail in this area just encourages even more traffic-which is better suited where we have a variety of thoroughfares that will carry the traffic. I would suggest we compliment the existing single-family homes in this area, with single family homes - perhaps patio homes. This is a close neighborhood. Where people attend church together, shovel their neighbors sidewalk and catch up over the adjoining fence. This neighborhood is housing the children of some third-generation families-who are raising their children in the same homes their grandparents first built. Introducing multi-habitational diminishes that community connection.

  • How well do the vision and principles align with your vision for the Belleview Avenue corridor? Is there anything specific you would add or change?

    Agree-we should build on an identity of community, of neighbors. Provide gathering places along the Platte. If you want small retail, put it along the banks of the Platte river, where people can walk, or can enter/egress via Santa Fe. Don't integrate it further into these neighborhoods. We cannot accommodate the lines of traffic in our neighborhoods now. Peak rush hours and even Goddard and Centennial school traffic is impeded by all of the traffic already.

    • Centennial Downs had a history here. It would be lovely to bring that back to life and embellish it.But, let's not forget the children in our neighborhood who have lost their lives. We don't need a memorial to do so, but a small space, a quiet space-to reflect, with park benches and a quiet place with some boulders and a simple tree or two. Something that is dedicated to the precious children in our community; I am reminded of Cameron Recht, a student at Goddard Middle school, who lost his life to cancer at just 14. And of Antonio Davalos, just 11 years old, who was murdered in the townhomes there on Lowell and Berry. Those sweet children and their lives lost too soon are as much a part of our history as the flood or the horsetrack. Just a special place - similar to our sweet Danny Dietz memorial in Littleton, or our memorial to the tragic loss of the flight-for-life crew.

    Focus on pedestrian mobility. We all know individuals who have been struck by or nearly struck by cars at Federal and Belleview. It has become all too common to see the debris of vehicles that have collided at that intersection too. No more traffic-we can't accommodate the traffic that we have now.

    Columbine Square should continue the concept of single family homes/patio homes that already exists for blocks both north and south. The space isn't vast enough to handle many, but we can't tolerate more traffic that multi-habitational would undoubtedly introduce.Containing the traffic protects the current families and pedestrians.

    Despite the attempt at a "facelift" a few years ago with the Centennial Square retail shops just north of Belleview and east of King Soopers, they remain an eyesore, with some spaces completely vacant. This area can still accommodate retail, or a combination of retail/multihabitational, as the traffic east of Federal still has access to main thoroughfares north/south via Santa Fe and via Federal East via Belleview.

    The new condo development on Prince, north of Walgreens has posted outrageous prices for these condos. $400-$600k-some +$200k over the average sale price in the neighborhood. While we certainly want to accommodate young families coming and growing up in our Littleton community, any multi-habitational needs to accommodate a range of income levels. We still need young families to fill our schools and pay taxes and work in our retail shops and stores. Those labor opportunities don't work if we create housing like the monstrosity that now overlooks our entire downtown-with monthly rental prices of $2,500-$4,000. We are forcing our young families to live in other communities or in more rural areas, or outside of the city.

  • Are there other issues you would add? What opportunities would you like to see explored for this site?

    Finish bringing it down as soon as practicable. It has not only been an eyesore in our neighborhood, but has encouraged vandalism and homeless activity. The city council's ongoing delay to act on this property could have cost individuals their lives. The area needs to be designed to continue to compliment the surrounding neighborhoods around it; patio/single family homes. There is not ease of access West, with Belleview changing to two-lane road into BowMar, S. Bowmar and Bowmar are gated, which impedes an ease of traffic headed south or west and Lowell is much too congested now. It can hardly handle rush hour and Centennial/Goddard schools at the end of each class day. We cannot add multi-habitational in this area. We have already identified the limited infrastructure on this site-which was never designed to accommodate apt. bldgs. Keep the same community feel and incorporate our friends at O'Tooles-who have been a wonderful part of our community. They have given classes, held small gatherings, provided a venue for musicians musicians and given flowers to our churches. Incorporate that community feel with our neighbors at O'Tooles. They have brought so much beauty to our neighborhood over the many years at this location.

  • As this site redevelops over time, what would you like to see?

    Keep the small, single family homes. We cannot accommodate additional traffic, without any thoroughfares to move large numbers of people in and out of this site. Don't add more retail here. That space had GREAT parking, but diverse retail, with varied peak hours,, so it never had large amounts of traffic coming and going. Our friends at O'Tooles needs a more defined parking area and entry/egress. It can be dangerous in the spring/summer busy seasons.

  • Do you have other comments on this opportunity area you would like to share?

    US Bank is also dated and a bit of an eyesore. We love having US Bank there-but the concrete and drainage issues have left it needing a major facelift, as well. Again, it would be great to build on our Centennial Downs concept that we started with Riverfront Downs. Find a way to honor our children in this neighborhood. Incorporate small places to sit and rest in the shade and strike up a conversation with a neighbor. Littleton is a community. We have experienced tragedy together; with Columbine, the 1960's flood, the flight-for-life crew, Danny Dietz and little Antonio Davalos. So many children and young people - taken too soon. Find a way to honor them with a bronze statute-just a place of respite to connect with our neighbors and their precious children. These neighbors shovel each others driveway, they care for elderly neighbors and some homes have 3rd generations of children in them. Honor that concept and with it we honor our quality of Littleton life, here, as well.

  • Are there other issues you would add? What opportunities would you like to see explored for this site?

    This area can accommodate more multi-habitational/some light retail, with more access via Federal, Belleview/east and Santa Fe. It is an eyesore and needs to be re-imagined. But with multi-habitational in this already heavy traffic and retail space of K. Soopers-it needs ready access to Union or other thoroughfares. It will be continually more high-hazard for pedestrians that will choose to reside there.

  • Are there other issues you would add? What opportunities would you like to see explored for this site?

    Further developing that back parking lot endangers the high foot and cycling traffic of pedestrians entering 24-Hour, Egg&I and Pedal. It would be best to continue to enhance the park/patio features that would provide shelter for cyclists/walkers along the Platte River. The additional steps, ramps, patio spaces there, with the rock features just added so much beauty in that area. Create a space for respite for walkers and cyclists. We already have vacant retail in that space. The recent signage in the area helps bring patrons into the structures.

  • Are there other issues you would add? What opportunities would you like to see explored for this site?

    While somewhat dated, these retail shops have provided needed services for our surrounding community. Southwest Auto keeps their lot tidy and neat and provides local services that are reasonably priced for a wide range of incomes. Walters Pizza has become a great meeting place and although has limited patio and seating space-has created a great local meeting place for neighbors to mingle and come together, while making a tremendous effort to give back to the community; through various fund-raising events. The cleaners has remained viable with long-time customers. It's great to have the pet services there and there are committed patrons to the liquor store there, too-but they really need a "push" to finish restoring that portion of the building. Other than that-these are viable small/family retail services that bring value to our local community. This area should be low on our restoration priority list.
