An­other hous­ing de­vel­op­ment?

The Denver Post - - OPINION -

Re: “Aurora High­lands wait­ing for take­off,” March 15 busi­ness news story.

Am I the only per­son who is ex­tremely alarmed about the prospect of an­other de­vel­op­ment? The Aurora High­lands project will add 23,000 new homes and 60,000 ad­di­tional peo­ple to the Den­ver metro area.

We al­ready have one of the worst traf­fic sit­u­a­tions in the coun­try, spend­ing hours try­ing to get to and from work. Most im­por­tantly, we live in a semi-desert cli­mate. There will ab­so­lutely not be enough wa­ter for the con­tin­ued in­flux of peo­ple.

What are our elected of­fi­cials do­ing to ad­dress the de­clin­ing qual­ity of life for the cit­i­zens here and for the scary prospect of wa­ter short­ages? Gov­er­nor, please slow down this out-of-con­trol growth! Lynne Rasey, Golden
