Arapahoe County Board of County Commissioners submitted a letter for each of the urban renewal plans that were approved by the Littleton City Council. The objections are very similar from one plan to the next. They assert that the plans are not plans as defined by the law and they do not believe that the blight conditions rise to the level of being a menace to our health, safety, welfare and morals.
The Santa Fe Corridor plan has an additional objection – the inclusion of the agricultural land. The Urban Renewal Law was updated in 2010 to make it virtually impossible to include agricultural land in an urban renewal area. The County Assessor has filed an objection in District Court; no date for the hearing has been set at this date.
