GREENWOOD VILLAGE, Colo. (CBS4) – Voters have spoken on a real estate plan in Greenwood Village.
By a vote of 4613 to 1479, residents voted down a move to redevelop an area near the Orchard Road Light Rail Station. The area is currently a business park.
Planners wanted to build homes and stores there. It would include taller building buildings and the homes would be multi-family housing.
Supporters say it’s an opportunity to build a vibrant community, but opponents worry the town’s suburban feel will be damaged by creating too many apartments and tall office buildings.
Voters’ filled in mail-in ballots are due by 7 p.m. on Tuesday.
