CASCADE — The 30-acre site, north of Cascade, between Utepas Elementary and Green Mountain Falls, is the focus of small life-sized community developers.
Currently, the land is partitioned for residential use, and developers are demanding that the space for recreational vehicle parks be subdivided into 130-200 subdivisions.
Joe Karantine, CEO of the Lifesize Tiny Community, said:
Opponents of development say they are worried that it could lead to more traffic, school congestion and strain sewers.
In addition, I am worried that the overall mood of the community will change.
“This will reduce the value of my home’s assets and I don’t know why government agencies want me to do that,” said Newman McAllister, who lived in Chipita Park for 50 years.
To discuss their concerns, both sides met last Sunday for a meeting and greeted nearly 200 opposition community members in attendance.
“It’s not right for the community and we continue to fight it in every ounce of our existence,” McAllister said.
El Paso County told News 5 that the proposal is still in its very early stages. They state that there are several opportunities for both sides to share their views with the county committee before the final decision is made.
