Please sign this petition in opposition to the cluster development of 920 homes proposed at CR158 and CR 5 known as Independence (f/k/a Bandera). The Public Meeting hearing is scheduled for June 27th at 7p, please plan to attend. The current application for Independence is moving forward even though the Zoning for the property has expired and it is unlawful by State Statute (CRS: 24-67-102) for Elbert County to approve a development application.

    To watch all of this beautiful land being destroyed daily between Elbert County and Denver, is heart breaking to say the least. These "rural subdivisions" are nothing but the same cookie cutter houses that are in Denver/Metro- there is nothing "rural" about them. Our wells are at stake, our roads are at stake, and so is our lifestyle. Please stop trying to over populate an area that is full of wildlife, farms, and people who truly love the land.

    We moved out here to avoid the congestion , cookie cutter houses on top of each other, and for our children to enjoy the wildlife and have open space.

    This is too much development, too soon, for this part of Elbert County. As a resident of eastern Douglas County just over the county line, I will be impacted by increased traffic on Hilltop and Flintwood Roads that will occur with the high-density Independence development. This is not smart development; it's dropping a small, dense urban town into an area that is rural.

    This development is a threat to the western, rural way of life we so cherish out here. We do not have the infrastructure to support a community of such gregarious proportions.
