I oppose Goldberg Properties, Inc., non-conforming, 51-units per acre rental apartment building in the heart of historic Olde Town Arvada. I am distressed by the 30 waivers from the City’s Design Guidelines. I oppose the solid wall this structure presents at the entrance to Historic Olde Town Arvada and the City’s giveaway of over $2 million of our tax dollars. I am disturbed that this deal was created in transactions that were hidden from public scrutiny. In addition, I oppose demolition of the historic Masonic Lodge without the formal public hearing that is required by the Design Guidelines. Goldberg Properties, Inc. should alter the design of this building to strictly conform to the Design Guidelines, without waivers, to preserve the historic integrity of the neighborhood. I will make my voice heard by calling Mark Goldberg, Goldberg Properties, Inc. at 303-759-8000.
