It’s no secret that Broomfield upset a few of its neighbors when it aggressively annexed just about every piece of lucrative land it could get its hands on in the ’90s. Now it appears hurt feelings are popping up over the usage of some of that land. Broomfield is trying to move forward on a 145-acre mixed-use development on Erie’s east fringe. Erie thinks the new community will violate an agreement between the two that calls for an open space buffer. Broomfield says it is doing no wrong; Erie has sent a stern letter to their neighbor to the contrary.
What’s Next: While the two entities squabble over border rights, Erie will likely file a complaint. Litigation, anyone?
