Letter to the editor: Enough with development

Your recent article about development and the possible tearing down of two old houses is a sad commentary of our town.
We have development everywhere here. It is out of control! Anywhere there is a field or some business the city wants to tear it down and build apartments.
Our quality of life is suffering and the developers have free reign from the mayor and the city council to do whatever they want. Remember the $30 deal for that $5.6 million property on 56th and Wadsworth?
The developers get whatever they want. No Mayor Williams, the people of Arvada don’t want all the development you said when explaining the 56th Ave. deal.
We also get taxed more. Remember when the city wanted to tax us more to expand roads? No! it was voted down. Don’t take money from me when it is the city’s fault to overcrowd us. Make the developers pay for the roads.
We are also seeing all the homeless in the area. People near Wadsworth are having things stolen from their yards etc. I took my kids on the G Line and there were four homeless people making a camp at the Olde Town Station.
The city even took down the No Trespassing sign on Wads and I-70. We are becoming like San Francisco. To the mayor and City Council, stop it. It’s getting ridiculous and hurting our way of life in Arvada.
David Albertsen,
Arvada
