I am writing to express my displeasure with the city of Arvada and its handling of the property on the corner of 60th and Pierce. This once beautiful property is more than an eyesore, it not only looks like a dump but people are now treating it as a dump.
It truly is astonishing that the city has allowed this to happen. I spoke with my city council representative, the planning office, and code enforcers over the last two years. In March, my city councilor said he thought it would be cleaned up this spring. In June, the planning department told me that the property would be cleaned up by August. It is now September. I contacted my city councilor again and he told me that the “wheels of justice move slowly.” This obviously is not a priority for them, but it is for the residents of this part of Arvada. As I mentioned, people have now started dumping their trash on the property, including mattresses.
It may look like a dump, but is not a dump. I know the former property owner is responsible for the initial destruction of this land, but why can’t the city do something. Why do we have code enforcement? At the very least, the city needs to have the property owner trim the 5-foot tall weeds.
