negotiations along I-25 and 402.
Mayor Pro Tem Gene Pielin (who is running for
Mayor) has asked the item be pulled off the Council's
public agenda until after the election. Loveland
taxpayers have grown weary of the City Council
throwing every extra city dollar into "incentives" for
development along I-25 corridor. As foreclusres rise
in Loveland and property values decline, the public is
angry over further "incentives" to create more new
homes and retail along I-25. Pielin is said to be angry
the City Manager placed the approval on the October
16, 2007 City Council agenda. It is clear they support
the action (because they don't want to vote no and
were aware of the negotiations) but prefer it be done
after the elections since this action contradicts what
they have been telling voters..
