Enough building

Thank you, Bill Christopher, for your article about the 2020 Westminster Survey in the July 9 Westminster Window.

It was interesting that the responses to the survey were that many people think there is too much density planned in Westminster. The proposed 2,350 units for the area bordering on Federal and between 84th and 88th will cause a lot more density and traffic congestion.

I think that at least two employed people will be needed to purchase one of those units so that could mean 4,700 cars.

How can that area handle 4,700 more cars traveling on its streets? Where will those cars be parked? The units probably won’t have two-car garages. If the council thinks those people will use the light rail on Federal, they are dreaming.

Maybe some might be able to — depending on where their jobs are located — but most will probably be driving their car.

And how much water will 4,700 people and their families use in a day besides the watering of the lawns and supposed park areas?

There are articles in the Denver Post stating that we are in a drought. The supply of water is decreasing! How many paired homes are being built on 88th and Lowell? How many units are being proposed on the SW corner of 104th and Sheridan? How many apartments/condos at the old Westminster Mall?

Enough building! Stop it!!

Pat Bird,

Northglenn
