Heritage West/Bear Creek Village/Green Mountain Village (HBG) Neighborhood & Community Organization Reloadable Gift Cards have been a BIG success!
Over 100 are now in use, so the income stream to support the quality of life in our neighborhood is increasing every day.
Check the Take Action page for more details.
Purchases made with these cards support HBG's efforts to keep
2090 S. Wright St. FREE from development.
How Does the Card Work?
You pay $5 for a card that is preloaded with $5, then you 'load' the Gift Card at the cash register (before making a purchase)
with any amount and spend it like a prepaid debit card. Ask a cashier or self service register attendant to help you out.
Your receipt shows the remaining card balance so you can recharge it before it gets to zero.
You can also check your balance at any cash register, and there is no limit to how many times the card can be reloaded.
To purchase gasoline at a King Soopers gas station or Loaf N Jug, scan your regular Soopers Card before the transaction as usual,
then swipe the REWARDS Card and the balance remaining is shown before you pump the fuel. Pump your fuel and print your receipt.
How Do You Get a Card?
You must use a card that we provide in order for HBG to get the 5% donation on each purchase.

The fight for 2090 is; however, far from over.
The land is still vulnerable to development due to the recent city-wide rezoning AND because the school district refuses to concede, despite the mountain of evidence, that they are not the rightful owner of the property. Tara Schupner's latest article on RMDS closed with this information: "While RMDS moves forward with building its new school, Jeffco Schools isn't done with 2090 [S.] Wright St. Jeffco Schools will continue to seek quiet title to the property with an eye to selling it, [Cindy] Stevenson [superintendent of JPS] said."
Therefore, the lawsuit to determine ownership is ongoing. Our case continues to strengthen as we continue to research and find documents. The lawsuit is also costly; therefore, fundraising is a top priority.
Please also consider a generous donation, which can be made via check or PayPal. See our Take Action page for details, and don't hesitate to contact us if you have questions.

Additional Information specific to 2090 S. Wright St.
If the City-wide rezoning is approved, as currently written, the 2090 S. Wright St. property, which is within the Hutchinsons Green Mountain Village (HGMV) Planned Development (PD), will be rezoned from PD/Municipal Purposes to PD/R-1-6. This is basically the same zoning designation that Jeffco Public Schools applied for and then subsequently withdrew.
The current zoning allows for uses that are compatible with the surrounding neighborhoods, such as open space or a park. The R-1-6 zoning, which according to the draft map is being applied to the entire HGMV Planned Development, allows for incompatible uses such as: Group Homes, Office Space, Religious Institutions, Transportation Facilities, Public or Private Schools, and Utility Facilities, to name a few.
One of the reasons people purchase homes in or adjacent to planned development is because the "plan" protects them from uses that are incompatible with the surrounding neighborhoods. The proposed rezoning to R-1-6 changes the Planned Development/Municipal Purposes zoning to allow incompatible uses.
Please help us by telling everyone you know in Lakewood about this issue.
Then write to your Council Members to 1) demand that the Council rezone 2090 S. Wright St. as Parkland/Open Space, and 2) ask the Council to delay the City-wide Zoning Ordinance vote until well after the holiday season, to ensure that every citizen has ample time to study the draft Ordinance to see for themselves what it contains and how it impacts them, their neighborhood and the City as a whole.
You can also submit your thoughts regarding the new Zoning Ordinance directly to the City Planning and Zoning staff using the form on this page: http://www.playyourpart.org/shareyourthoughts/Default.aspx11/15/12
Over 8,000 signatures were submitted to the City Clerk's office on Thursday afternoon because of your hard work and dedication.Through the petition process, the citizens of Lakewood have spoken and they have spoken loudly – demanding the right to vote, for themselves, whether 2090 S. Wright Street should remain open space or be rezoned for a regional charter school and a whole host of other possibilities.
