I am concerned with the influx of Multi-family units being built in this neighborhood. There is already a congestion issue along 38th Ave, and adding another Townhouse development in that space will continue to add to that. We have lived in our home for 16 years, and this part of Wheat Ridge is losing its neighborhood appeal and becoming more like an extension of living in Denver. The other Townhouses along 38th between Depew and Fenton have created much more traffic in the neighborhoods behind them, with people tearing through the backstreets and causing safety issues. While I am all for improvements in the current structures in that subdivision, I am not in favor of yet more multi-family builds in this part of town.

I am a nearby neighbor of the proposed development and support it. Improvements along 38th Ave., in my opinion, make it more appealing, more walkable, better landscaped, feel safer and improve the tax base. I would appreciate clarification of what is to become of the existing commercial building, which includes a restaurant and other tenants. Will that building be improved, change ownership, or remain the same? Thank you.
