Traffic main argument against Uplands
I have appreciated the various opinions and facts Bill Christopher has written in the Westminster Window regarding the proposed Pillar of Fire development which includes huge numbers of apartments and other units.
I live in Shaw Heights and frequently travel down Lowell from 88th Avenue to 72nd. Usually, there is a line of cars even during non-rush hours. And of course, it increases substantially during the rush hours.
I can only imagine how horrible the traffic will become if this proposed development is allowed. The only options I could use to avoid this would be to go either to Sheridan or Federal boulevard and neither is reasonable. The developers told us at a meeting that neither Lowell nor Federal would be widened to assist with the traffic.
There are so many other reasons that this development should not be approved but traffic is certainly a main reason.
I encourage all people who live in this area to write letters to city and county officials as well as City Council members and to sign a petition to oppose this development.
Jerrie Coyne, Westminster
