Is this definition: Littleton's Community Character leads to a sense of individuality via a combo of land use, placement of new buildings and their relationship to the street, sidewalk & parking, street patterns, a varied built environment reflective of the city's history, & a robust natural area.
Not Favorable


Would you add or change anything to the definition?
The sense of individuality doesn't make sense to me in context. Perhaps using another word like place. Land use seems to be a non-sequetor, and the placement of new buildings perhaps is an opportunity to revise. Perhaps stating
"Littleton's downtown Character is a combination of placemaking that encourages the contextualization of historical structures with new development, respecting their relationships to the pedestrian, while providing a unique and varied built environment that respects the city's history, strong community, and abundant natural surroundings.


What do you like about downtown right now?
The restaurants, shops, holiday lights, activities like the criterion, the light rail, and the overall community feeling. The streetscape is good, but need connectivity with the neighborhood, light rail, and the other side of santa fe.


What, if anything, would you like to see downtown that isn't there now?
Diversity of restaurants, better public spaces, parking, intentionality in development, better zoning with a purpose.


What concerns do you have about downtown?
The lazy zoning allowing wood-framed medium density development that is ugly (stucco/ modern/ alley access) and poor neighbors. The fact there's no plan for future transportation or parking is a strategic issue. We need office use to ensure we can leverage the resources we have. Our fair city deserves long term planning which provides for all our community needs, which we may not have right now.


What makes Downtown Littleton unique? Pick your top three.
A vibrant Main Street, Walkability, Access to light rail


Do you foresee any challenges in this process to transition to the ULUC?
There are many challenges and as an Architect, I'm looking forward helping in any way I can. I love Littleton and it's taken 6 years to understand how it's special. Thank you for doing this.

Very Favorable


Would you add or change anything to the definition?
no


What do you like about downtown right now?
Combination of businesses, small town feel, and mixed residential. A semi-urban center and gathering spot for the area. Unique and interesting stores and events.


What, if anything, would you like to see downtown that isn't there now?
Juice bar, healthy eating options.


What concerns do you have about downtown?
I hope developers of the old houses make reasonable decisions. They may have better ability to sell what they build if they make something reasonable rather than max density, and push the limits on every aspect of the zoning.


What makes Downtown Littleton unique? Pick your top three.
A vibrant Main Street, A mix of uses (retail, office, residential, entertainment, dining, services, etc.), A human/pedestrian scale

Is this definition: Littleton's Community Character leads to a sense of individuality via a combo of land use, placement of new buildings and their relationship to the street, sidewalk & parking, street patterns, a varied built environment reflective of the city's history, & a robust natural area.
Somewhat Favorable


Would you add or change anything to the definition?
Littleton's Community Character is based on a sense of individuality. An eclectic environment reflective of the city's history, economic longevity, architectural diversity and natural beauty.


What do you like about downtown right now?
The growth of small business that fill a variety of niches. The “feel” of Downtown Littleton is zeroing in a “natural trendy” something that is organically grown by the community and doesn’t have a forced feel. I’m looking at you RiNo. Stylistically the look of Old Town and Downtown proper look as though they belong, not forced modernist “squares”. They look will harm in the long term, and potentially also in the short.


What, if anything, would you like to see downtown that isn't there now?
More fashion forward stores for men and women.
Art along the trails throughout downtown.
The Old Mill being used.
A CONCERT HALL. Maybe not a Mission Ballroom but a Marquis-esq smaller venue. This would be huge.
ACC should be looking to expand and development more with the Downtown business..achieve more of a college town vibe...an affluent one.


What concerns do you have about downtown?
The new “modern” townhomes going in. We should cap residential building and develop for more small business space. Long term benefit. This should be further constrained to have new build “match” the look of a “quaint” downtown.


What makes Downtown Littleton unique? Pick your top three.
A vibrant Main Street, Access to light rail, Access to Mary Carter Greenway and other regional bike trails


Do you foresee any challenges in this process to transition to the ULUC?
It will depend upon a bit more research into the ULUC guidelines.

Not Favorable


Would you add or change anything to the definition?
The definition above was clearly written by committee. See my rewrite below.
“Littleton’s community character reflects the livability of our city combining the city’s historic downtown, leafy residential streets and sidewalks and natural open spaces that fosters continued vitality consistent with these qualities.”


What do you like about downtown right now?
Historic buildings that house restaurants and shops built on a human scale.


What, if anything, would you like to see downtown that isn't there now?
Right now Littleton turns its back on the city’s most iconic view up Main Street to the courthouse. If the street were not one-way, drivers could appreciate this view as they drive eastbound. Maybe we would encourage people to stop, shop, eat and spend their needed tax dollars here.


What concerns do you have about downtown?
It’s still hard to park because the RTD lot fills with commuters going somewhere else. We need more exciting and entertaining businesses to draw people.


What makes Downtown Littleton unique? Pick your top three.
A vibrant Main Street, Historic district and buildings, Outdoow community events (Elf-crawl, block party, Twilight Criterium, Western Welcome Week, concerts etc.)


Do you foresee any challenges in this process to transition to the ULUC?
Reaching consensus on the balance between city government regulation over development and organic market action. There is a need for both but I’ve lived in Colorado all my life and have seen the unwanted extremes of massive growth of cheaply built apartments and the NIMBY mindset of no new growth. We need to encourage buildings and streets that pass the test of time. Downtown has done that but new developments like Littleton Village and the boxy apartments along Rio Grande will not.

Not Favorable


Would you add or change anything to the definition?
Accessibility. Natural or green spaces. Some mention of increased density.


What do you like about downtown right now?
Good shops and restaurants. Historic character.


What, if anything, would you like to see downtown that isn't there now?
Sidewalks easier to navigate. More bicycle parking and bike lanes. A small playground. A town square where Geneva Village is now which would allow Geneva Lodge to be visible and utilized better. Lower speed limit on Main and Prince. More attention paid to Prince and Alamo streets. Better signage for parking. Better lighting and sign on the Little’s Trail to the Mary Carter Greenway. Something in the Old Mill!!!


What concerns do you have about downtown?
Pedestrian traffic on sidewalks with trees randomly planted. I’d rather see more rooftop decks than patios.


What makes Downtown Littleton unique? Pick your top three.
A vibrant Main Street, Historic district and buildings, Eclectic architecture and building design, Access to light rail, Outdoow community events (Elf-crawl, block party, Twilight Criterium, Western Welcome Week, concerts etc.), Access to Mary Carter Greenway and other regional bike trails

Maintaining the historic structures, neighborhood feel, the local shops and restaurants

Does not seem to have a cohesive approach to dealing with issues.
