Best Experience: Please describe your experiences in your neighborhood along the Belleview Corridor? Thinking about these experiences, what and who were involved that made these experiences memorable?
We have lived south of Belleview, between Lowell Blvd. and Bow Mar, for the past 40+ years. Initially this was a very peaceful neighborhood. We felt safe in allowing our children to skate board, walk down to the Dairy Queen etc. I would not allow my grandchildren such freedom today.


Values and vision: What do you value most about your neighborhood and what do you value most about the amenities along the Belleview Corridor?
I value the longevity of people who live in the neighborhood. I like the various retail stores, such as O'Tooles, Kings, etc.


Knowing that improvements/changes are coming to the corridor, what about the corridor do you want to see preserved?
What I don't what to see is more apartments, or high density housing along Belleview. This area is already overbuilt with this type of housing. The traffic is awful and more multi family housing will just make for more pollution, noise, congestion etc.


Three Wishes: What are three wishes you would make to enhance and modernize the Belleview Corridor?
To the planners: Pretend you live here, what would you like to see just a stones throw from your longtime home, hundreds more people, cars and congestion? I don't think so.
Let O'Tooles expand to the south where the shopping/charter school was.
Don't turn Littleton into another Aurora or Denver.

Best Experience: Please describe your experiences in your neighborhood along the Belleview Corridor? Thinking about these experiences, what and who were involved that made these experiences memorable?
I rarely travel west of federal on Belleview. This is a nice residential area and relatively quite. My most memorable experience was climbing to the top of the "Wood Chip Pile" created about 1997 or so with the very damaging September snow storm. This pile of wood chips was at least 20 feet high and covered most the old sewer treatment plant area, now Lowes.

I actually walk along this area several times a month. I just love trying to cross Belleview, the smells of the dust when cars go by, and the sound of the cars and truck bearing down on you since the sidewalks are adjacent to the street in areas, and don't forget the sand , dirt and gravel on the sidewalk that makes walking here more hazardous than hiking in the mountains.


Values and vision: What do you value most about your neighborhood and what do you value most about the amenities along the Belleview Corridor?
I like the bridge over the river. Harlow Park. Access to the river.


Knowing that improvements/changes are coming to the corridor, what about the corridor do you want to see preserved?
(These comments pertain to Federal BLVD towards to the east.) Not much to preserve. It would be nice to have a more pedestrian friendly sidewalks to improve access and safety, no vehicle curb cuts and ramps that cut across the sidewalks. This would encourage more people to walk, reducing car traffic. Access to the river, and towards DT Littleton and the light rail stop. Reduce the required parking for stores and business to 90 percent capacity. The majority of all parking spaces are not used in these businesses (King Soopers with just the right amount) , and excess parking lots just add to runoff issues and increasing the heat sink. Reducing the parking requirements to reasonable sized based on use would also allow for more businesses to come to the corridor, and make it more visually appealing. Requiring parking based on square footage of buildings results in most cases way to much parking, IE Lowes and Home Depot.

Preservation is the wrong word. How about redevelopment, again for the sections east of Federal. This section of Belleview has been totally redeveloped over the past 30 years, and most it poorly designed.

The Santa Fe overpass should be advertised as a great refuge location for cars when hailstorms come through.



Three Wishes: What are three wishes you would make to enhance and modernize the Belleview Corridor?
New development should have parking place behind the businesses and the buildings places close to the street. Forget the landscaping requirements, they do not work.

Continue to develop housing, including the Columbine Square site. Retail will never work on this site, as the past 30 years has proven. Continue to build residential units north of Belleview, and aggressively make safe, wide pedestrian connections from this area, on North Price street to Belleview.

Reduce the width of the street lanes, which when narrower, automatically cause people to drive slower. Do not install median strips, they do not work, the vegetation dies and they are not maintained.

New development should be located close to the street, in order to create a more humanistic feel, and not just a sea of ugly parking lots.

Best Experience: Please describe your experiences in your neighborhood along the Belleview Corridor? Thinking about these experiences, what and who were involved that made these experiences memorable?
I've only recently moved to the Bellview corridor this year. Once we found our home, we very quickly fell in love with the area.


Values and vision: What do you value most about your neighborhood and what do you value most about the amenities along the Belleview Corridor?
I love the neighborly feel of living here. The lack of high density housing and tall buildings. How close we are to trails and downtown Littleton and that we can walk or ride bikes to get there. I especially love the families that these kinds of neighborhoods attract. It's part of why we moved here.


Knowing that improvements/changes are coming to the corridor, what about the corridor do you want to see preserved?
I do not want to see high density housing come into this area. I see so much potential with Columbine Square! Please keep big chains and box stores away though.


Three Wishes: What are three wishes you would make to enhance and modernize the Belleview Corridor?
1. Columbine Square could be filled with small businesses and restaurants. 2. Widen sidewalks and 3. make it more pedestrian and bicycle friendly

Best Experience: Please describe your experiences in your neighborhood along the Belleview Corridor? Thinking about these experiences, what and who were involved that made these experiences memorable?
I have lived in the city for over 30 years and I can't say that I have had a memorable experience along the Belleview Corridor. I do frequent some of the stores. However, this is one of the ugliest corridors -- among others in the city (Littleton Boulevard and Broadway to name two). Bellevue is a corridor that is endured driving in one's car.


Values and vision: What do you value most about your neighborhood and what do you value most about the amenities along the Belleview Corridor?
There is NO vision for anything in this city currently. It is a shame that there hasn't even been updated Comprehensive Plan that would have helped this neighborhood start the process of developing a vision years ago.

Going forward I would say the street needs a strong multi modal aspect. Better bus service to light rail stations. The Columbine Square complex needs to be redeveloped to include multi-family housing. There is no way getting around the fact that housing will have to be included at this location. There needs to be some retail that serves the surrounding neighborhoods but it will only thrive with additional housing.


Knowing that improvements/changes are coming to the corridor, what about the corridor do you want to see preserved?
I can't think of anything other than some of the retail such as Ackerman's, O'tooles, Home Depot, Lowes. Truly, it's not about preserving -- the corridor needs an overhaul.


Three Wishes: What are three wishes you would make to enhance and modernize the Belleview Corridor?
"Modernize" is a very strange word and very limiting. Aren't we talking about "revitalize"? For example, the city could do a new street that would be considered modernizing but it probably would not do anything to revitalize the corridor. The corridor improvements should be all about serving the city and the neighborhoods. That said, three wishes:

1) develop a vision with broad community input; it must be inclusive, not just Sunshine Boys group
2) provide the neighborhood with background on walkable, thriving corridors so that they will have some food for thought. Multi-family housing is not the evil thing people often think it is; the last thing we need is more unneeded surface parking. What a waste of precious land. Bring some outside consultants in to talk about these things.

3) More housing and better transit opportunities

Best Experience: Please describe your experiences in your neighborhood along the Belleview Corridor? Thinking about these experiences, what and who were involved that made these experiences memorable?
I drive this street at four or five times each week. The changes to the shopping center just past the river on the south have been helpful. The Mary Carter Greenway Trail have improved this area. The old strip mall to the North side behind KingSoopers is a bit of an eyesore. The worst problem with this neighborhood is the fenced off Columbine Square Shopping Center, something needs to happen with this area, but not high-rise apartments.


Values and vision: What do you value most about your neighborhood and what do you value most about the amenities along the Belleview Corridor?
My church is along this corridor (St James Presbyterian) is what I value most. I appreciate having a Home Depot and KingSoopers along the corridor. Harlow park and pool are a nice amenities as well.


Knowing that improvements/changes are coming to the corridor, what about the corridor do you want to see preserved?
Harlow park, river access and


Three Wishes: What are three wishes you would make to enhance and modernize the Belleview Corridor?
Center median with better access to the KingSooper shopping area would help make the area feel like a community. Common fencing along the housing areas might help. Get something moving with the Columbine Shopping center area and the old Safeway building parking lot at Belleview and Lowell blvd.

Best Experience: Please describe your experiences in your neighborhood along the Belleview Corridor? Thinking about these experiences, what and who were involved that made these experiences memorable?
We have gone to many events at the Corridor. Just leave it alone. It is perfect the way it is.


Values and vision: What do you value most about your neighborhood and what do you value most about the amenities along the Belleview Corridor?
It’s serenity, natural beauty and peacefulness.


Knowing that improvements/changes are coming to the corridor, what about the corridor do you want to see preserved?
Leave it alone. The Santa Fe corridor along the river is ruined with the new brewery and winery. It is loud there and trash. All of the squirrels and water fowl are either gone or are hardly there anymore. Belleview is just that, a beautiful view. Man needs to clean up its footprint, not make it worse by “changing” the natural beauty into something that is unnatural.


Three Wishes: What are three wishes you would make to enhance and modernize the Belleview Corridor?
Do not enhance or modernize. Spend the money on cleaning up the pollution from waste and water pollution and bringing back the city’s natural beauty beauty.

Best Experience: Please describe your experiences in your neighborhood along the Belleview Corridor? Thinking about these experiences, what and who were involved that made these experiences memorable?
It is easy and close to get to the necessities of every day living, food, hardware, cleaning, auto repair, gasoline all in this location.
Do not mess it up with more high density housing with a low tax base.


Values and vision: What do you value most about your neighborhood and what do you value most about the amenities along the Belleview Corridor?
Going East & West on Belleview allow only one left and right turn between Federal & Santa Fe into north shopping areas. Increase left turn lane for Home Depot. Reengineer & move the left turn into shops going north on Federal just passed Belleview. Review the left turn lane from Belleview to south Federal.


Knowing that improvements/changes are coming to the corridor, what about the corridor do you want to see preserved?
Ease of getting to and completeness of shopping areas. The best nursery the Denver area. King Sooper and Home Depot.


Three Wishes: What are three wishes you would make to enhance and modernize the Belleview Corridor?
No pot shops, no high rise buildings ( 3 stories max), make Cornerstone Square more commercial offices, medical offices, restaurants, fast food,with min housing that will add to the tax base. Could be developed as a youth center. Do not need to add to the morning & nightly traffic. The square became idle because the landlord kicked all the renters out by rising the rents.

Best Experience: Please describe your experiences in your neighborhood along the Belleview Corridor? Thinking about these experiences, what and who were involved that made these experiences memorable?
The Arapahoe Hills neighborhood coming together to get historic preservation for the mid century modern style that ties our neighborhood together visually. Our street has quite a few elderly family's who help each other as best we can. And we appreciate the younger families moving in and having children. Low traffic allows walking and many people do, which helps getting to know neighbors.


Values and vision: What do you value most about your neighborhood and what do you value most about the amenities along the Belleview Corridor?
See above. Also our landscape harbors wildlife. The yards are well kept. The new King Soopers is a great amenity. We bank at the Wells Fargo. We support the Gas express station and carwash. Walters Pizza is nice to have nearby. We belong to the 24hrFitness in Riverside Downs. We prefer Lowe's to Home Depo.


Knowing that improvements/changes are coming to the corridor, what about the corridor do you want to see preserved?
The green space and parks access to the South Platte trail.


Three Wishes: What are three wishes you would make to enhance and modernize the Belleview Corridor?
Better traffic control lanes for left turns into King Soopers.
Sit down restaurants as opposed to fast food.
Bring quality retail into the space vacated by Denver Fabrics.

Best Experience: Please describe your experiences in your neighborhood along the Belleview Corridor? Thinking about these experiences, what and who were involved that made these experiences memorable?
Basically I only use it as an access route to more heavily travelled routes such as Santa Fe and I-25.


Values and vision: What do you value most about your neighborhood and what do you value most about the amenities along the Belleview Corridor?
I value the location of my neighborhood and the access it provides to Littleton Public Schools. I rarely use any of the businesses along Belleview except for the stretch between Santa Fe and Federal.


Knowing that improvements/changes are coming to the corridor, what about the corridor do you want to see preserved?
I appreciate the reasonable speed limits on the corridor.


Three Wishes: What are three wishes you would make to enhance and modernize the Belleview Corridor?
Keep it much as it is.
