Should the zoning along Littleton Boulevard be changed
due to the character of this corridor?
Yes, the B‐2 properties should be rezoned to B‐1 to only allow limited or restricted commercial uses.
Along Littleton Boulevard, should all redeveloped or new business and commercial uses place the building at or near the street, with parking only to the rear? Yes, do not allow parking between the building and the street.
Should drive‐through uses be permitted within the Neighborhood Business (NB) district? No, drive‐throughs are not appropriate in near proximity to a neighborhood.
Should properties along Broadway that directly
abut single‐family be rezoned to Transition
Residential (TR) or Neighborhood Business (NB)
instead of General Business (GB)?
Yes, as these properties redevelop over time, they should be more suitable to the area in their use, scale and design.
How should industrially zoned land within the Corridor Mixed Use (CMU) boundary be handled? Rezone them to a more appropriate district encouraging the use to change over time.
What is the greatest concern with the location of industrial districts within the Corridor Mixed SUe (CMU) area? Impacts on adjacent and nearby properties.
What is the most important regulation for best managing industrial uses? Rezoning these parcels to another more appropriate district.
What is the greatest value of Planned Development (PD) districts? They have been the best way to achieve quality development with good standards.
How might Planned Development (PD) districts be managed most efficiently? I’m not sure or don’t have enough information to comment.
How important are pitched roofs to the character of Littleton? Of essential importance along certain corridors.
Sloped roofs are most important along which of the following corridors? (Choose all that apply) Littleton Boulevard, Belleview Avenue, Broadway, Santa Fe
Is there anything else that you would like to add? If you want public opinion then you need to write these questions in a way that someone who is not a public planner can understand. B-1, B-2 properties? Frontage types? That is very hard to understand. Bottom line as a resident of Littleton, is that it is a community with a lot o unrealized potential that needs to rezone, find revenue and make it a community with character. Right now, littleton is a pass through community that no one wants to give their discrecenary income to , because there is no place to do that and the run down strip malls, litany of gas stations and car dealers don't encourage any development that would address the issues that this community faces.

How do you usually get around? (choose all that apply) Bike, Drive
What is your preferred way to get around? (choose all that apply) Drive
If more destinations were bicycle friendly (secured bike parking, shower facilities, tool stations) would more people bike? No
I think more people would use the bus or light-rail if: it was cheaper (both out of pocket and any tax subsidies) and would provide support for a greater variety of schedules.
I am comfortable getting to a bus-stop or light rail station, grocery stores, health care, shopping and entertainment, employment opportunities in Littleton. Agree
Here are my ideas for making getting to places in a more comfortable way. Mass transit in my opinion is too expensive and will not meet the needs for the volume of traffic I see in Littleton. I find it not cost-effective enough to compete with owning and operating a vehicle. It takes in many cases more than 30 minutes to make it to a reasonable destination than it would be to drive myself. Therefore, it seems reasonable to: increase the capacity of the road systems within Littleton. The key intersections are Santa Fe and Bowles/Littleton and Mineral and Santa Fe. Broadway is also often backed up from Arapahoe to C-470 during rush hour. During rush hour traffic is back up more than is safe or reasonable. Mass transit should also do whatever possible to cut costs and increase flexibility to make it compete with single drivers. Well over 50% of my movement is not repetitive. So mass transit would need to provide a solution so that it competes with driving myself.
I would shop local if I could walk to neighborhood stores and shops if I could walk to them. No
Is there any way that the Unified Land Use Code can support getting around more easily? Plan for the volume of traffic forecasted and build roads to accommodate the forecast.

Not every neighborhood needs design standards.
Could a wider range of lot sizes, including smaller lots for smaller houses, be acceptable? Yes
How should the City of Littleton address its responsibility to the regional housing crisis? Littleton should allow more housing variety, which could include duplexes/two-unit housing, multi-family/mixed use, accessory dwelling units, and more density in the parts of the city served by transit routes. Tiny homes are not a great answer - they're basically RV's. If somebody wants to build a studio apartment-sized ADU, let's make that possible instead of RV's.

How should the City of Littleton address its responsibility to the regional housing crisis? A comprehensive plan to support the unhoused population must be developed. This should include wrap-around services for some, group housing for some, rent-controlled apartments for some, expanding programs that prevent homelessness and support low-income families and seniors, and perhaps a tiny home development for those hardest to house, who need autonomy. A one-size-fits-all approach does not work because of the complexity of the problem. Homeless encampments exist here, and many in our community are fearful of people experiencing homelessness. We must work together with other communities in our region, and seek federal money to address this problem now.
