An Important Letter sent to the Planning Department by a Neighbor

Some serious investigative reporting

This is a very telling letter written and sent by one of our neighbors to the city planning department.  It details many of the issues and lays out an important timeline.

The City of Loveland has proposed to rezone 9 properties (6.93 acres) in the vicinity of W. 6th Street & Douglas Ave. from R1e low density residential (single family) to R3e high density residential. Note: this rezoning proposal does not include a formal plan for development. 

FACTS ABOUT CITY OF LOVELAND’S PROPOSAL TO REZONE NINE PROPERTIES (6.93 ACRES) IN THE VICINITY OF W. 6TH ST. & DOUGLAS AVE. FROM SINGLE-FAMILY (R1E) TO HIGH-DENSITY (R3E)

Rezoning a part of the neighborhood to R3 would effectively remove our rights to notification and participation in the following property types:

  • Infill Multifamily
  • Commercial spaces: general office and personal services
  • Multi-plexes
  • Domestic violence/abuse shelter
  • Group homes
  • Live-work units
  • Boarding houses
  • Day care facilities (adult and child)
  • Under R3 zoning, these property types would be allowed to proceed with only administrative review.


Many neighbors are concerned that high density zoning could open the neighborhood to development that is not consistent with the character and history of this residential part of Loveland, leading to increased traffic, noise, pollution, light, and speeding on our neighborhood streets.

Rezoning such a large area may serve as an invitation to an assemblage, where one developer buys up multiple lots for a larger project.

According to the City’s Unified Development Code (UDC), the existing properties (except the empty medical office building) can make improvements and continue to operate under the current zoning.  There is no reason to rezone these properties.

The former medical office property has redevelopment options under the current zoning OR the option to pursue rezoning in conjunction with a specific development plan with transparency to the neighborhood.

We are not against redevelopment, however, we do oppose THIS rezoning proposal.

This rezoning could have a great impact on much of the West Endies, not just the people near the rezoning area.
