I am opposed. We bought our home in Wheat Ridge instead of Denver in part because it is still primarily single family homes and community. Developers have not yet destroyed that by putting in an ugly 300 unit high-density housing into communities that cannot support them. This community cannot support the traffic and daily commutes, there are not enough schools, And there should be green space per family and adequate parking otherwise that traffic gets pushed into the lower density areas that were designed thoughtfully. Single-family zoning is how the surrounding community is zoned. Don’t try and turn this suburban community into a city.

I am a Wheat Ridge citizen. I totally support the opportunity to have a lot more affordable housing in Wheat Ridge. There are so many people who work hard and support our community, but adequate housing is out of reach for many of them. I would like to see the people who live in this housing be workers in Wheat Ridge so that we will build our community and the residents will really care about the city in which they live. The western suburbs have a great dearth of affordable housing, especially for young working families. If we don't want to continue the trend of homeless people, we need to address their needs for housing that they can afford.

As a homeowner in Skyline Estates I am very concerned about the density 300 units would strain the traffic. We simply do NOT have adequate street parking for such a project. Im appalled with how much the City of Wheat Ridge is trying to obfuscate what this really is - government HUD housing dumped right in the middle of a subdivision of homes worth over $800,000. The misleading name of the meeting and the time of the “virtual” event makes it clear that the City is trying to disenfranchise the community and home owners. No doubt this will lower the value of the nearby homes. I also have serious concerns about the Jefferson Residential Housing developers. They put up 400 units-not yet occupied in Golden with little to no parking available. The JRH is not a long established developer and had bad ratings under their past business affiliation.
