Developer Gives Up On Applewood Golf Course Rezoning

Applewood_Golf_Course_2As of Nov. 6, developer Carlson and Associates has dropped its plan to buy the 145-acre Applewood Golf Course in unincorporated Jefferson County near Wheat Ridge. The Prospect Recreation and Park District is now in a position to buy the property as open space following a Nov. 3 election in which voters approved a 1-mill property tax as well as an increase in debt up to $19 million to buy the land from Molson Coors.  The beer company has owned the golf course since the 60s. Molson Coors said in a statement that they are considering all options including selling the land to park district.  Carlson and Associates was seeking a rezoning to allow for 424 homes. The course and restaurant are at 140001 W. 32nd Avenue.
