DENVER (AP) - A future vision for an "airport city" at Denver International Airport is bumping into a vision from the past, Adams County and mayors from communities surrounding the airport say.
The Denver Post reports (http://bit.ly/W8mpcX ) Friday that those communities, including Aurora, say long-term development plans violate a 25-year-old intergovernmental agreement. Those communities say an agreement limiting the types of businesses allowed on airport property was reached when Denver annexed land for the airport. Denver also plans to develop land near the airport.
Adams County officials fear the airport developments will draw business away from their developments.
Aurora and Adams County last week asked Denver to send representatives to a committee formed to address the conflict.
