Hello <<First Name>>!  The warmest to you and all our vibrant neighbors in this new year. Here's what's on our 2023 radar:

Cherry Cricket sign with ball reading "Coming to Littleton

Cherry Cricket lands on Littleton Blvd.

Ground has broken on the future home of storied burger joint, Cherry Cricket. The much-loved local restaurant is coming to Littleton Boulevard in 2023. And with it, hopes for something of a Renaissance along that corridor. The new Cherry Cricket location is the site of the former Crestwood Cafe (and before that, Hasty House). We're looking forward to that Crispy French Onion Burger already!

construction site of SMHO's fifty-one homes at Powers and Elati streets

Homes for senior & disabled people on way at Powers and Elati streets

Getting housing built of all stripes is a daunting process but affordable housing always has additional hoops. The “Overlook at Powers Park” is finally under construction (Elati and Powers). Owned by the city’s public housing authority, South Metro Housing Options (SMHO), the 51 units will serve low-income seniors and disabled persons. It took years to get approvals from the Federal housing agency and the city’s rigorous entitlement process – not to mention be funded with the help of the highly coveted 9% Low-Income Housing Tax Credits for which there is tremendous demand throughout the State of Colorado. 

Introducing Littleton Social Cycle

We are so excited to introduce you to Colorado's newest social bicycle group ride! Littleton Social Cycle will be a cruiser ride for all ages and biking abilities.

General elections give voice to all our community. No to snap votes. No to Question 300.

Why I'm voting "NO on 300" this March 7

“Without a doubt, the timing of elections determines voter turnout. Lower turnouts are a fact in off-cycle elections. This creates a strategic opportunity for small interest groups, who are the most mobilized, to inform and persuade voters to show up as the greater proportion of the voter turnout at these special elections. Therefore, Question 300 aims to empower the most organized special interests groups to drive our city’s policies. I want every general election vote to mean something in November, which is why I do not support Question 300.” — Katie M., Littleton District IV
