has filed a lawsuit challenging the city's land swap of open space to The Broadmoor
, approved by City Council
on May 24.
The documents were filed late Friday and contend the city doesn't have the authority to deed the 189-acre Strawberry Fields open space to a third party without a vote of the people. The tract was acquired by the city after voters approved of the purchase in 1885.
Save Cheyenne is a non-profit formed in the midst of discussion of the deal earlier this year. The swap gave the city roughly 370 acres
of trail easements, wilderness property and a 9-acre tract adjacent to El Paso County's Bear Creek Regional Park
, all owned by The Broadmoor.
