Westminster’s city council approved the huge new development known as The Farm, just north of old Westminster Castle.

There’s 230 acres off 84th and Federal Boulevard.

Many neighbors don’t support the development because they want to maintain the open space views.

Proponents of it say it will connect neighborhoods and schools through sidewalks which don’t currently exist.
