Jeffco Open Space will host two community meetings, on Saturday, March 2 and Tuesday, March 5, about the potential Heritage Square Land Exchange.
Jeffco Open Space has received a proposal from Martin Marietta Materials for a land exchange. The exchange would deed the former 114-acre Heritage Square and the 5.7-acre Bachman property at US 40 (Colfax) and Heritage Road to JCOS. In return, JCOS would deed approximately 64 acres of Matthews/Winters Park north of I-70 and south of the existing mine, which is currently not open for public use, to Martin Marietta Materials for expansion of its operations. When mining is completed, the land will be deeded back to JCOS for park and open space purposes.
