The Wheat Ridge request, as currently submitted, includes annexing 20.98 acres behind the east side Walmart to develop 37 single family lots and three mixed use lots.

City staff are recommending denial based on concerns about public safety resources, stormwater and compatibility with operations at Malmstrom Air Force Base.
