The property is located in Arapahoe County. Ownership was divided among an Environmental Trust and a group of private entities. The adjacent landfill is owned by the City and County of Denver, and managed by Waste Management of Colorado.
The rezoning and landfill designation were based on a land transfer wherein Denver will obtain ownership of Section 5 for future landfill operations and Aurora will obtain portions of section 4 to expand the Aurora Reservoir open space corridor.
The rezoning and certificate of designation for a landfill were approved in 9 months.
