Washington Village Under Fire

by Osman Parvez
Neighbors of the Washington Village Cohousing Development filed a lawsuit today.

From the Daily Camera:
The lawsuit, brought by neighbors who live next to the former Washington School at 1215 Cedar Ave., alleges the Boulder City Council broke the law in changing zoning lines to accommodate a proposal to build homes, condominiums, commercial space and a "co-housing" community.

The complaint lists as defendants the city of Boulder, the City Council and the Wonderland Hill Development Company, which brought the plan forward.
The suit contends that the zoning change broke the law because it "confers a special benefit on (Wonderland Hill Development Company) to the detriment of the community as a whole, and therefore, is illegal spot zoning."

Meanwhile the petition drive continues unabated. Given the number of people involved, the passionate efforts on display, and now this lawsuit... I think it's an ominous sign for the development.
