Keep "Pine Curve" Historic
PARKER, COLORADO Signers of this petition are at least 18 years old and live within Parker Town Limits. (Please add your address in COMMENTS.)
Signers of this petition demand that Parker Town Council remove the new land use section titled "East Downtown Gateway" from the new 2035 Parker Master Plan and keep Pine Curve protected under the Parker Historic Center Design Standards.
Pine Curve is the vacant, hilly property on the east side of Pine Drive and Mainstreet owned by the Town of Parker. The land became part of the Historic Center in 2002. Standards for the Historic Center prohibit automotive uses, restrict the size of buildings to be "compatible with existing development and historical development patterns," and emphasize a pedestrian-centric design.
Creators of the new 2035 Parker Master Plan are suggesting that Pine Curve be removed from the Historic Center and included in a new district called the "East Downtown Gateway" where automotive and "big box" uses will be permitted, thus allowing a King Soopers grocery store and gas station to be built on that land.
Citizens feel that a King Soopers and gas station on Pine Curve are not only economically nonviable, but will completely change the historic charm we are working to preserve on Mainstreet east of Parker Road. Please sign the petition to protect Pine Curve.
