Nine Mile Corner Development Still Controversial
Erie, Colorado and Lafayette, Colorado still remain hung up in what has now become a long and drawn out bit of head-butting over a proposed multimillion-dollar development known as Nine Mile Corner.
Lafayette has a lawsuit going against Erie oriented around the condemnation of the land where Nine Mile Corner is planned. What’s uncertain as of last week is whether litigation will be allowed to proceed. If so, it may mean some new precedents will be set for how the judiciary in Colorado oversees the use of eminent domain.
The gist of the argument is that Lafayette doesn’t want Erie to develop the land. Lafayette wants the land to remain undeveloped open space for what it labels “public purpose” and wants a clear buffer from nearby Erie.
Lafayette is apparently try to to use condemnation of the land to force it’s ‘no development’ agenda over the Town of Erie. It may be several weeks before we learn the outcome of this current squabble.
