TO THE CITY OF WHEAT RIDGE COUNCIL MEMBERS: The citizens of Wheat Ridge, Colorado, voted a majority against the high density movement in Wheat Ridge. I, as a registered voter in Wheat Ridge, encourage Council Members to reflect my vote and those of the thousands of other Wheat Ridge residents who elected you to represent them, in decisions that are made on our behalf.

Regarding this ODP proposal, I've heard neighborhood objections that this ODP will be a "bait and switch" proposal that will open the door to major revisions in the final Specific Development Plan. None of those specifics, maps or drawings are binding, claim these opponents. They have suggested that and SDP should have been used instead, but this doesn't seem to be the city's usual process. Checking the city's Review Criteria for SDPs, I see that the final plan needs to be "consistent with the design intent or purpose" and the "Development Guidelines" of the approved ODP. Will this serve as assurance that the project will actually be built substantially the same as this ODP describes? Are the design intent and purpose specifically stated in the ODP document?. If not, could these statements be added as amendments? They might specify building heights and other controversial details. During the hearing, I look forward to hear council's view of the power of the ODP's specifics, and the limits on additions and enlargements at the SDP stage. These questions are bound to come up with other development proposals, and we'd all benefit from the new Council's stance here.

We noticed the increased noise from the Miller/Coors can recycling plant almost immediately. Specifically the additions to the plant in 2018/2019. It has increased by a large margin since we moved to Skyline Estates, Arvada in 2003. We are further away from the plant than our neighbors in Wheat Ridge. I honestly don't know how they tolerate the noise within a 1-2 block proximity. When walking through the area or sleeping with a window open the loud whooshing sound is very distinct. We believe in being good neighbors. This includes the surrounding businesses. Something needed to be done at the time of installation to alleviate the obvious increased noise level. This situation was not addressed. I am hopeful that with the City Councils assistance and the community awareness present at Miller/Coors this can be corrected. Thank you
