THORNTON, Colo. (CBS4) – In June, dozens of Thornton residents thought they had beaten the city to replace an actual golf course with a stadium-style driving range, only to learn that the development may happen anyway.

A judge ruled the city had improperly zoned a portion of the Thorncreek golf course for the development, siding with a neighbor who filed a lawsuit. In September, the city council unanimously approved a rezoning of the parcel, re-clearing the way for the development again.

The same neighbor is now suing again – this time asking a judge to force the city to respect the neighborhood’s wishes.

“Now you tell me they’re considering top golf again. That makes me upset,” Delia Garcia, who lives a block away, says. “They’re not listening to their citizens.”

“Our neighborhood is being attacked by other neighborhood who are enthusiastic about it,” says Charlie Garcia.

The city could not comment, citing the pending litigation, but a spokesman says the lawsuit is being reviewed.
