Proposed Changes to Landfill Zone/OU2

 

Proposed Change in Land Use: Because of Denver's regulations prohibiting taking responsibility for contaminated property, and the prohibitive costs associated with upgrading the cap and constructing a golf course on top of the landfill, the initial open space/golf course identified in the Lowry Redevelopment Authority's Master Plan was dropped from consideration. Lowry Assumption, LLC fenced the area to keep foot traffic and other activities from compromising the integrity of the current cap. In January 2006, as part of the overall land transfer from the Air Force, the landfill was transferred to IRG Redevelopment, LLC, who is proposing to change land use to allow for mixed use -- a combination of residential and commercial/retail they are calling "Lowry Vista." As part of the initial planning process, IRG is developing preliminary plans for the site and discussing their redevelopment proposals with the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment and the City and County of Denver. Any redevelopment of this area would require a significant change in the current landfill cap with Air Force and Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment approval of that change to ensure continued protection of public health and the environment. Approval of the actual development is the responsibility of the City and County of Denver. The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment received the 30% Design Document for Lowry Vista on May 30, 2008. Department comments were sent to the developer on July 11, 2008.
