KB Homes was told the City of Loveland doesn't believe in all residential metro districts in Sept. 2006 and
denied and application for Aspen Knolls. In August of 2007, McWhinney received strong support from the City Council to form a
metro district for Lakes At Centerra.
Now, the City Council barely approved
(5-4 vote) a new metro district for Delta Investments' Cascade Ridge 451 homes to be built west of Hunter's Run. Unlike the McWhinney proposal, Cascade Ridge is only 45 mills for the development and 5 mills of property tax for the school and city parks budgets.
Developer Chris Fellows was shocked to encounter a City Council that didn't want the metro district to pay into school and city funds so "development pays its way." Is it your sense the Mayor was concerned when he saw his colleagues trying to kill a fiscally more conservative proposal than McWhinney's only one month after they approved Lakes At Centerra?
