Protesters rally against Rooney Valley rezoning

Some dressed in full-on dinosaur costumes, others wore dinosaur hats, and many carried signs proclaiming, “No car dealerships, no rezoning” — all to protest a rezoning application that, if approved, will add auto dealerships, hotels and retail to the northwest corner of C-470 and Alameda Parkway near Dinosaur Ridge.

On the evening of Jan. 11, about 60 adults and youths assembled in front of the Jefferson County courthouse, hoping to sway the county commissioners in their decision about rezoning the area for proposed development by Three Dinos LLC.
