Littleton Is Lone Wolf Among Colorado Cities Re: Voter Approval for Urban Renewal Projects

Littleton-lone-wolf-voter-approval-urban-renewal.jpg

As Molly Armbrister reports for the Denver Business Journal, the city of Littleton now requires voter approval before the city can use its powers of tax and eminent domain for urban renewal projects, making Littleton "unique" among Colorado cities.

What the Voters Say

Question 300, as the ballot initiative is known, gives voters more power over the city's authority to declare certain sections of the city as "blighted." Residents may not agree with such a declaration, especially those who live in affected neighborhoods.

What the Opposition Says

Those who didn't want Question 300 to pass, like Littleton Mayor Phil Cernanec, generally claim that real estate developers will simply cross Littleton off their lists, given the additional hurdle they now face in terms of getting a proposed project approved.
