City of Arvada to host first open house for new development plans on Thursday

Written on 09/20/2020

In May of this year the Arvada City Council adopted Land Development Code which will lead to planning and building three new developments in Arvada. These “sub-area plans” are defined as a type of long range planning for a limited geographic area within the City. These sub-area plans focus on goals and policies for topics such as land use, urban design, architectural design and transportation.

New Town Sub-Area Plan:

The New Town Sub-Area is generally defined as the areas along Wadsworth Boulevard and Bypass between the G Line tracks on the north and Interstate 70 on the south.  The Arvada Marketplace shopping center along 52nd Avenue is also included.
