What's Next for Washington Village

by Osman Parvez

Now that the developer has conditional approval, what's next for the project? It seems a push for sales given an upcoming deadline for closing.

From the Daily Camera:

There are still details to be figured out. The City Council approved the project on the condition that Leach wait to develop two of the single-family housing lots to give the city — or another buyer — a chance to purchase them and convert them into park space.

Leach said he's hoping neighbors — many of whom opposed the project — will urge the city to find the money. If a buyer doesn't emerge, Leach would be required to raze a library annex on the south side of the site to provide more open space.


But neighbors who opposed the project — which they argued wouldn't fit in their neighborhood — said they haven't given up fighting.


Given the location and organized opposition, I expect this project will remain in the spotlight for some time to come. We'll be watching closely.
