The Denver Planning Board has scheduled a zoning change request that would clear the gas station's path on Wednesday, Nov. 21 at 3PM. The meeting will be at the Wellington E. Webb Municipal Building at 201 W. Colfax Avenue - 4th floor conference room #4.F.6. .
Why do we believe this gas station is a bad idea? The traffic congestion in the Morgans/Safeway/1stBank parking lot is already over the top, as is traffic at the increasingly busy Downing and Evans intersection. A gas station will only bring in more traffic and more accidents at the already overtaxed and busy intersection.
Neighborhood group University Neighbors is opposing the plan and requesting that before the City takes any action, Safeway should provide traffic studies, parking studies and an environmental impact report. Everyone is welcome to attend and comment on the gas station plans.
