DENVER — The city of Denver has rejected a petition from residents of the Park Hill neighborhood that would have required a supermajority vote of 10 council members to rezone the vacant Park Hill Golf Course, as developers and city leaders eye the space for housing and commercial development.
The Denver City Council was set to vote Monday night on several items related to the project, including the removal of a conservation easement that currently limits how the land can be used.
It wasn’t until early Tuesday morning that Denver City Council voted 11-to-2 in favor of putting an ordinance about what to do with the land up to voters, who will have the final say on lifting the conservation easement to allow for development of the 155 acres during a special election on April 4.
