The Loveland City Manager and staff have recommended the City Council ignore the Planning Commission and proceed with Annexation of semi-rural property along the Big Thompson River. The Planning Commission found the Annexation, as proposed, is not consistent with adjacent properties among other reasons for their denial.
Now the matter was appealed to Loveland’s City Council and opponents fear the builders on council and their friends (Heckel, Clark, David, Johnson and Pielin) who are normally dismissive of residents who question any developments, will approve the annexation.The current owner bought the land as rural county land with no promise by the City of Loveland that it would be annexed and developed to a higher density. Among the many problems with the location is that it has flooded in the past, is adjacent to low-density 5 acre home lots and borders the Big Thompson River which Loveland’s Master Plan contemplates keeping as open as possible.
The Council meets at City Hall Tuesday at 6:30 PM. Any comments either before or after the meeting are welcomed.
