Wheat Ridge vote scheduled for tonight’s City Commission meeting

The City Commission is scheduled to vote tonight on the proposed Wheat Ridge Estates subdivision.

Developers are requesting the annexation of 20.98 acres for a residential subdivision behind the Wal-Mart on 10th Avenue South.

City staff is recommending denial of the project due to public safety, transportation connectivity and storm water concerns as well as potential conflict with operations at Malmstrom Air Force Base.

Spencer Woith, project developer, said that his team submitted revised storm water plans to the city on Friday that he believes will mitigate the city’s concerns, but those plans were submitted after the deadline for the agenda packet and have not been made publicly available yet.

The city planning board voted to recommend that commissioners approve the development.

Here’s the background on the project and we’ll have more coverage tonight and tomorrow.
