Ballot Question 2E on the Rezoning of 4000-4066 Upham (posted in the Office of the City Clerk on the City’s website Sept. 25, 2019)
Shall Ordinance 1667, Series 2019, an ordinance rezoning real property at 4000-4066 Upham Street, City of Wheat Ridge, from Residential-Three (R-3) to Planned Residential Development (PRD) with an Outline Development Plan (ODP) allowing for 38 townhome units in nine buildings, go into effect?
At the August 25, 2019, City Council meeting, the Council acted on a referendum petition that was submitted by Wheat Ridge residents whether to rezone the property at 400-4066 Upham. City Council referred the ballot question for a vote of the people in the election on November 5, 2019.
Subsequently, on August 29, 2019, a complaint was filed in Jefferson County District Court (Case NO. 2019 CV 31333) challenging the petition and its inclusion on the 2019 ballot. The judge recently ruled in the case determining that the petition is valid and therefore the issue will be decided by the voters.
