Proposed Monument body shop gets a green light despite petition

Posted: Updated:
Monument -

Despite pushback from neighbors, the Monument Board of Trustees voted to approve a new body shop moving into a residential neighborhood.

As News 5 reported on Monday, it's happening off of Bekin Light Road.

Despite a petition signed by the majority of their residents, a nearby mobile home park feels as though they have essentially lost the fight against a large body shop that's going to be moving in next door.

On Tuesday night, the Monument Board of Trustees approved the rezoning application in a 5-1 vote, giving Tri-Lakes Collision a green light to start the development.

The owner of the Monument Meadow Village mobile home park says he was just given notice about a month ago about this proposal and he scrambled to let all of his residents know.

They say they're not against the empty lot next door getting developed, they just don't want to see an auto body shop.

Neighbors say it will bring in too much traffic, could drop their property values and change the look of their neighborhood.

"Everybody agrees that we have nothing against body shops but this shouldn't be next to a community so we think we're getting short changed because we're a mobile home park," Patrick Shannon, owner of Monument Meadow Village said.

The developer plans to landscape the outside of this auto body shop in a way that they say won't affect the look of the neighborhood.

News 5 reached out to the owner of Tri-Lakes Collision and he did not want to talk on camera after this meeting.
