Pine Creek residents are preparing to take their fight against plans to build hundreds of new apartments in Briargate to the Colorado Springs City Council.

Preserve Pine Creek Village, a group of Pine Creek neighbors, on Thursday formally appealed the Planning Commission’s Jan. 10 approval of plans to build the 232-affordable unit Royal Pines Apartments at North Powers and North Union boulevards. 

The council will consider neighbors’ concerns during a hearing expected to be scheduled for the board’s regular meeting on Feb. 13, according to a email sent Thursday from Planning and Neighborhood Services Director Peter Wysocki to Pine Creek and other Colorado Springs residents.

In the documents filed by Joseph O’Keefe, an attorney with Colorado-based Baker Law Group representing Preserve Pine Creek Village, he said the development planned adjacent to their neighborhood will be “detrimental to the public interest, health, safety, convenience or general welfare.”
