Ballots were sent this week to Greenwood Village residents for the special election question that if approved would amend the city’s Comprehensive Plan. Voters must return their mail-in ballots by 7 p.m. on June 6.
Voters are being asked whether the city’s Comp Plan should be changed to allow the Orchard Station Subarea to have higher-density housing, among other changes designed to encourage proposals for mixed-use developments.
In a compromise reached by City Council, no building in the subarea could be taller than those in the adjacent Landmark complex.
The kind of development, as already proposed, would have a balance of office and retail space, along with limited residential that “shall be evaluated to
determine its cost impacts on city resources,” the proposed amendment states.
If Question 1 passes, after a plan for the development of the subarea were submitted, the city would undertake a traffic study, among other aspects of an official approval process.
Question No. 1
Shall Ordinance No. 04, Series of 2017, amend the Greenwood Village Comprehensive Plan by adopting the Orchard Station Subarea Plan, as recommended by the Planning and Zoning Commission on Oct. 18, 2016, and as amended by City Council on March 20, 2017, be adopted?
