This statement could easily have come from a Littleton resident, but it didn’t. Across the Denver metro area communities are struggling to “preserve our heritage.” Both these quotes are from the Denver Post article Lakewood Looks to Preserve the History of a Neighborhood… Littleton is not unique in its endeavor to maintain its character and view development as a way to benefit the community instead of just the builder. Attention to quality of life is at stake here. It is good and right for people to participate in their government. As we have seen here in Littleton (see article Public Works Collaborates with W Mineral Neighborhoods), when the city and citizens work together great things can happen. Let’s make it that way always.
